Lance Armstrong ‘does Glasgow’

Whatever your opinion on Lance Armstrong may be, he can sure pull a crowd. – He simply sent out a simple Twitter message late on Monday evening to say he would be heading out for a ride from Paisley town centre. Never having visited, I shouldn’t comment, but Paisley is certainly not noted as for it’s spot on the tourist trail. However, that ride has now been ingeniously dubbed ‘Le Tour de Paisley’ and seems to have been a  memorable occasion for all. Despite the rain.

– Stuart Fraser, who trained here in Stirling until he vacated University in the summer, joined in, and he tells me “It was amazing man. I shook his hand and everything. It sounds totally gay but it was just really exciting. Like being a wee kid again”.

I guess I should’ve gone to Paisley for a bike ride!
