George Butterfield organized a student biking trip in France with his wife Martha, and her brother, Sidney Robinson. Their idea was to spend each day biking to places they’d discovered on earlier travels, then go out for a great dinner and a bottle of wine. It must have been one hell of a trip, because today Butterfield & Robinson offers more than 100 exhilarating trips all over the world.
