    Day 6 - Langeais to Angers, 71 miles

    April 21, 2016 in France

    Wow what a day. 71 miles along the Loire Valley using the 'La Loire a Velo' cycle route which tracks quiet roads and river paths whilst taking in all the main sights, chateau's and towns. It really doesn't get much better. Also picked up a companion along the way in the form of Carsten a German cyclist doing 6 months round Europe with the kind of beard I couldn't grow even if I didn't shave for 20 years.

    The blue sky's have gone though and experienced the first cloudy day of the trip with couple of light showers which wasn't too bad as kept the temperatures down but we did have a nice tail wind for the whole day (apologies to the non cyclists as I will probably mention the wind quite a bit on this trip).

    Not going to lie the last 10/15 miles were tough today. After yesterdays 70+ miles the knee, bum and thighs were starting to ache towards the end and Angers and my b&b (which turns out to be run by a lovely Indian couple) couldn't come quick enough.

    Wasn't too happy with 4 flights of steep stairs to my room but after a shower it was a quick turnaround to find a restaurant. We were recommended an Italian (run by a lovely German couple) and after a beer and bowl of pasta each each we also went for a pizza. My Garmin stated I burnt 3,400 calories today so didn't feel that guilty!

    After a quick couple of beers in an Irish bar (they really do get everywhere) I'm writing this from the comfort of my bed where I will rest before tomorrow's 70 mile ride to Nantes!

    Down to the Loire

    May 22, 2017 in France

    Hot - 32 degrees this pm.

    Met Richard on his ICE trike. He's been adjusting his holiday plans after an unexpectedly hilly and wet first week. On his recommendation I had a four course lunch with cider and coffee at the place where we met. Worked well and gave me the energy to extend my ride to 85 miles. Max speed 33mph. Average 12.3. Likely to be a record day this holiday.

    Vitreous looked interesting but comprehensively shut, even McDonalds.

    Nice bunch of people clearing out the Office du Tourisme in Craon. Practised their English on me and took my photo with bike.

    Coffee stop

    June 12, 2017 in France

    Looking for coffee at Saint Mathurin but being Monday morning everything was closed. We crossed the river to a restaurant on the opposite bank and had a coffee, which was all they could sell us. A few km later we found a boulangerie in Saint Remy where the lady made us a delicious ham and cheese baguette.

    #3 Angers

    September 27, 2017 in France

    Morgens ging's mit dem Bus von der Herberge zur Partneruni Agrocampus Oest der Hswt hier in Angers, dort haben uns die dortigen Deutschstudenten, die zum Teil im kommenden Jahr nach Freising kommen, ein zweites Frühstück vorbereitet und im Anschluss wurden wir über den Campus geführt. Hübsch haben sies, mit Dachterrasse, Gewächshäusern und kleinen Studentengärtchen, nicht schlecht.
    Nach dem gemeinsamen Mittagessen mit Crepe-Nachspeise fuhren wir gemeinsam in die Stadt, zu einer Führung.
    Die Stadtbesichtigungstour mit Jürgen Bartelheimer war ein wenig anstrengend, er hats sehr übertrieben mit dem “interaktiven Vortrag“, Vieles war aber auch sehr interessant. Trotzdem hat sich die Gruppe schon recht bald auf mysteriöse Art und Weise halbiert.;)
    Nach einem Abschlussbierchen und knappen Verabschiedungen hatten wir dann aber eh Freizeit und genügend Gelegenheit nochmal die kleinen Gässchen Anger's und ein paar süße Läden zu erkunden.
    Dem Studentengeldbeutel zuvorkommend haben wir uns dazu entschieden, im Supermarkt einzukaufen und zurück an der Herberge zu “picknicken“.

    #4-1 Domäne Vincendeau

    September 28, 2017 in France

    Von Angers hat uns Morgens wieder ein Bus abgeholt und zu Liv Vincendeau und ihrem Weingut gebracht. Sie hat uns Einiges erzählen können und auch wenn die Lese heuer leider schon vorbei war, gabs im Anschluss bei ihr noch eine kleine Testung;)
    Nach der Weinprobe in dem süßen kleinen Örtchen mitten im Süßweingebiet wurde im Park am Fluss das Lunch verspeist, das wir morgens aus der Herberge mitgenommen haben (diesmal reichlich: Baguettesandwiches, Karottensalat, Riegel, ...) ...(1)Read more

    We chose this town at random because it was on the way to Nantes. It had a great big castle and we stayed in the Hotel D'Anjou it had great stained glass and a lovely lobby.
