Whilst the TOUR de FRANCE was on we headed South to Tassie. May seem odd to head further into the cool of Winter but Tassie can put on some beautiful Blue Sky winter weather great for riding under, crisp yes but its well worth it! We thought we would have some fun and have our own little Tour ( with our “Mini us” Team Willylocke ),  named appropriately after the beer of the region of Tassie we would do most of our riding.
