The Dromoise – bike festival in French twin town

My hometown of Wirksworth in Derbyshire has a twinning link with a very lively little French town called Die (you pronounce it ‘dee’) .  One of the many annual ‘animations’ a Die is the September Dromoise bike event which combines stiff cycle rides over the nearby cols and fun family events in the town itself.

Just watch this warm welcome extended by the president of the organising committee.

Why Dromoise? Well the Drome is the name of the local river which also gives its name to the administrative departement

 

Now just try and count how many kids got involved in last year’s bike procession in the streets.

Tempted to go along? Well details of the Dromoiose are here
