PR’s men of steel (and a bit of carbon)
PR has many secrets.
One of them is something of a secret society. Actually it’s not even that secret really: it’s just that the thought of a bunch of middle-aged male PR people in lycra sweating around mountainous parts of Europe for one week every summer can have limited further appeal.
Les Veloistes Gentils is an extended group of friends who each year go on a bike ride founded by Metia’s new arrival Mark ‘Pinny’ Pinsent after he and his family moved to France. Each year, a dozen or more riders, usually about half of them in PR, head off together for a gruelling week of tough cycling and tougher banter.
I could continue to wax lyrical, but we could stray into lycra territory. And anyway, you can follow our frolics here.
