The CyclingTips crew lucked out when they booked an Airbnb while covering the 2016 Tour de France. Their accommodations offered so much more than a place to sleep! Check out thestory, video, and some great pictures from Richard Leon's Airbnb in the village of Viviers. Situated along the Rhone River, Vivers is in the Ardeche region of south-east France. I had the pleasure of spending a little time there on a three-month cycling tour back in the late 80s. Unfortunately, my trip predated Airbnb by a couple decades.
"While covering the 2016 Tour de France, the CyclingTips team was fortunate enough to stay at an AirBNB property in Viviers owned by Richard Leon. With 25 beautiful bikes in his collection and many stories to tell, it was a pleasure to spend some time with this engaging and philosophical long-distance cyclist."
