    Strasbourg

    September 6, 2016 in France

    And we made it to Strasbourg....
    Our biggest day of cycling yet... with a neat 76kms done and dusted

    Spent the evening in beautiful Strasbourg.
    The cathedral honestly took my breathe away when I first saw it. It's huge! We saw a cool light show that was projected on the side of the building... Nice evening

    Bek- tick & tick!!

    September 18, 2017 in France

    Raced back to the church for the 4.00pm chiming of the astronomical clock! Then climbed the stairs to the top of the church tower! So there are 335 steps up then you need to climb back down again! Just as I was in the bell tower ready to descend the bell chimed- nearly fell down the steps!

    Strasbourg, France

    September 18, 2017 in France

    Bonjour mes amis, vive la France! We are now in Strasbourg, the capital city of the Grand Est region, formerly Alsace, in northeastern France. It sits near the German border, with culture and architecture blending German and French influences. We spent the day wandering through the Old Town which is surrounded by the River ILL on one side and Canal du Faux-Rempart on the other. Beautiful bridges decorated with lots of colourful plants cross back and forth around the Old Town. Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame features an astronomical clock inside and for those who wish to climb its 332 steps partway up the spire (yes we did) it offers sweeping views of Strasbourg.Read more

    gravy train

    September 8, 2016 in France

    So we rode on this path that is the car testing road for GM motors... Flat asphalt... so I was enjoying actually getting to use some of my higher gears...and I turn around because I thought Sherelle was playing some music loudly on her phone...instead what was happening was the bags on the backrack of Sherils bike are rubbing on her rear tyre as she had lost both screws that hold it to the frame and it had all slipped back. Such a loud noise!
    So some bush mechanic-ing took place and we pushed on

    So we have been riding through loads of gravel (aggregrate) works... Such scenery!

    Day 2 Strasbourg

    July 1 in France

    We left Reims and started off along non payage roads towards Strasbourg. The scenery was absolutely stunning ( sadly no pictures) and we stopped for a picnic lunch in a scenic picnic spot only to find an old American tank preserved for posterity! Once in Strasbourg we had the studio flat accommodation again. Slightly more basic than yesterday’s but still good and again in easy walking distance of the town centre. After the short walk to the city I paddled in water by some fountains, then we explored on foot and looked at the cathedral, several churches, interesting shops and buildings. We wandered around Petit France, where the houses overhang the water, more like Venice to my mind than France! Next was a boat trip around the city mainly on the river ill and partly on a canal where we went through 2 locks. From The boat we saw Petit France from the water and also, the Court of Human Rights and the European Parliament among other things.Read more
