Heads down through France
In celebration of the recent success of Bradley Wiggins in both the 2012 Olympics and the Tour de France, we bring you some recent photographs taken around rural France.

The media is full of the stories about Bradley Wiggins for both his Gold medal as part of Team GB in the London Olympics and for bringing home the top award from an incredibly gruelling 3,497 kilometres road race through some of the most scenic regions of France.

 

 
On a recent trip through France, two of The Gardening Times.com team shot some great pictures of the stunning scenery during their own tour.  Whilst looking through them it reminded us all just how plant rich and beautiful parts of the French countryside really are and what a shame that Bradley and his team wouldn’t have been able to appreciate it fully whilst keeping their heads down and pedalling like mad for hour after hour.
 

 

 

 

These pictures are for our champion cyclists who can now see what they missed as they relax with their feet up for a while. For the rest of us they may be a reminder of our own tours de France at a much more leisurely pace.

 

Congratulations from The Gardening Times.com team.
