A bit more hiking and biking en France …

Bonjour ….. while Andy’s out on another training ride I thought it time to share with you our training from the past few days. Andy has been very good keeping to an energetic 25 mile ride along the coast at least every other day (although not hard with the fantastic views and the sunshine I’d argue).

Andy le veloMy hill training (apart from the daily walk up the steep Cancalaise hills for la baguette) has consisted of a trip out to Erquy on a moderate walk from the Judy Smith book of Walking Brittany.


Lots of ups and downs to get the heart pumping and once again (apart from the nude beach) you can’t ask for better views, although I really need to learn to watch where I’m walking as a few trips over the rocks and a fall into some very prickly bushes left me quite embarrassed and a little sore …. I’m ok though no major injuries 🙂 Meanwile Andy got close to nature (not the nudists, a pic here of a stick insect especially for our Grandson Kai).


The 9 km route was circular taking us up over the lovely coastal rocks through fields of heather, up to les quatre vents (the four winds), through a quarry and back into the lovely Erquy for a well earned beverage while listening to some traditional folk music warming up for the evening show.


A few days left yet, so perhaps time for another hike 🙂

Pleased to see more training and preparations for the 3 peak challenge going on at home in the UK, and especially can’t wait to get our @Donate4Daisy loom bands – thanks to our gorgeous Niece Ruby – well done 🙂

The challenge is nearly upon us!

Cheryl & Andy xx
