    Beautiful St Malo

    September 15, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    After our somewhat inglorious arrival at Mont St Michel via bus, I was really hoping that the rest of our French Cycling Adventures would be able to proceed without another problem. The third part of our trip was scheduled to start in St Malo and then take us on a week long loop around Brittany.

    I had arranged for a bus to transfer us and our bikes to St Malo, ready for the beginning of our Brittany ride. The bus arrived on time and, by mid afternoon we had safely arrived at our hotel in St Malo.

    There is no doubt that St Malo is a beautiful city, dominated by the huge fortified citadel. This stronghold had been used by the Germans as a submarine base in WW2 and was almost completely destroyed by allied bombing. What you now see is largely a replica of the original city. Replica or real, it is still a lovely location.

    Tomorrow morning we will begin stage three of our adventure when we head out to Dinan.
