Trip Report Why does riding a bike make me think of French food?

Jump to last reply

Back in the spring I began planning our annual bike tour. We looked at Magdeburg to Prague and also at Prague to Salzburg but what with the cheepo airlines moving their destination flights and Mrs Bilbo only having a week for a break, we decided on cycling La Rochelle to Bergerac. (thanks everyone for their advice on the Czech trip)

For those who do not know where this journey will pass, it includes coming south down the Atlantic coast of France to Bordeaux and then heading inland.

It makes most sense because our local airport (5 minutes away) fly to both airports and there are a bunch of trains along the route we can fall back on if our aged knees cannot make it. The route is mainly flat and with a a lot on bicycle paths or very quiet French roads. It was June and the meteo suggests 26C so we packed our lightest clothes and broke our bikes down for the flight.
