Warming up

A warm-up day today with a 27km nice quiet rural ride from Roscoff to Morlaix at a 19km/hr rolling average and a 13km night time tour of Paris to get from Gare de Montparnasse to our digs at 11km/hr (I blame the traffic lights not Miss OSMs byzantine navigation skills). In between that a 302km/hr ride in a TGV.

Naturally there were appropriate coffee, beer and pizza stops (the record will remain silent on the lunch that two of us indulged in in Morlaix whilst I was making do with a slice of cold quiche on the train (it was an artisanal quiche from an epicerie).

And it wasn’t my hankering for a good french tart that caused us to stop here:

Ewan later said “I didn’t think I was hungry, but since we are in a pizza place…”

Here is the route that Miss OSM guided us through Paris – Parisienne one way streets are two way for cyclists, which is all well and good if you are thin or not carrying bulky panniers.
