Media requires JavaScript to play. Armstrong does ‘Tour de Paisley’ The missionaries must have sent back favourable reports all those years ago for today there arrived a god…in sporting terms, that is. On Monday evening Lance Armstrong wrote the following on Twitter: “Hey Glasgow, Scotland!! I’m coming your way tomorrow. Who wants to go for a bike ride” Then in the early hours of the morning, there came another “Tweet”, which said: “Hey Glasgow – group ride starts at Ashtree House Hotel. 9 Orr Square. Paisley, Scotland. See you there at noon!!” From his 1,750,000 “followers” on the social networking site, word got out to the Scottish cycling fraternity and about 200 of their number and a throng of onlookers came to herald the seven-time Tour de France winner’s arrival.
There was little chance of this ever being a quiet ride around Paisley’s Gleniffer Braes.
