Declan Lyons brings a lifelong passion for cycling and touring to this guide. As a teenager in the 1960s, he explored the wilds of Connemara on a rusty three-speed Rudge bicycle. Since then, he has toured extensively in Ireland and further afield. He has cycled throughout France including regular trips from the Channel to the Mediterranean. Declan now lives next to the Canal du Midi, where he has spent the past decade exploring its history, culture and wildlife - accompanied by his wife, son and fellow bike enthusiasts.
