Biking in France

We had a fantastic adventure in France, taking the ferry from Portsmouth to Bilboa Spain, then riding through the Pyrennes and Ariege, on to Carcassonne, then Millau to see the Viaduct. We did a day ride to La Couvertoirade, a medieval village in Aveyron. We rode on to Rocamadour, Dordogne- another medieval village on a cliff- on our way to the sea. Along the way I was stung by a wasp that had flown in to my jacket and stung me 7 times! I took the opportunity to take some pics of a lovely Chateau. We took a break in a very small village called Triaize, Vendee on our way to les Sables d'Olonne, Vendee. Our last stop was at the Le Grande Metairie campground near Carnac where we found some Megalithes at Kermario that date back to as far as 3500 BC! BonJour!
