    Nimes to Avignon via a 30 minute train

    No miles riden today as I had a chilled morning exploring Nimes and visited the very impressive Roman amphitheatre which is still used today for all kind of events including bull fighting.

    From Nimes it was a short train ride to Avignon set on the River Rhone. Very interesting walled town with the huge Palais des Papes which I will explore tomorrow. Like this place and I will be using it as the starting point for about a week cycling round the southern Provence area, Mont Ventoux then down to the French Riviera.

    Time for a few beers tonight with an American and couple from Chiswick so we will see how the head is in the morning.
