    On the whole the weather's been favourable mate. An hours rain each day up until today, so not bad at all (prima dus :p). It was just unlucky I'd just taken off my waterproofs this afternoon - but hey, such is life! I'm having a great time regardless, and hope folk will enjoy my travels vicariously...

    My pleasure, Dartplayer - as I'm on my own on this trip it gives me some sense of purpose, too.

    Thank you Vulpes, following your trip I just realise that I live in a nice area, and never travel around :):) . That gives some week end goals for next spring

    Today started off very foggy - so no photos of the first bit. Which is a shame, because the route Napoleon (which I was on) is beautiful.
    The rest of today's journey was just making progress - not that I do not like those parts of France, but just no time this trip.

    The countryside today was very different from the high Alps. The first leg of the journey had some little cols, but after that the scenery just widened up.

    The last leg was mostly long, swooping, fast bends. Great for riding!

    Last day in France, and some nice riding was had. I headed for the route des cretes in the Vosges, and after that made for Luxemburg. A good day in all, some rain, but not too bad.
    On the way up...

    Well it looks like you've been slumming it on the food side.
