Travelsonabike2 France Monday 14th-October-2019

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in France on Monday, 14th-October-2019. Doubs to Strasbourg. 82 Miles. I’ve now left the Eurovelo route 6 and am now following route 15. I must admit that I’m not really one for following designated routes, but that EV6 was excellent. I recommend it to anybody and of any ability!

I’m hoping that my new route will be just as good. It’s certainly started out well!

Road through Forest
Though the forests first thing this morning

It’s been very easy riding today, through forest trails first thing this morning, then the rest of the day has been spent along canals! All very flat!

Loads of WW2 bunkers all along the canal today

I arrived in Strasbourg around 4 pm and came straight to the campsite. I knew that if I didn’t get my tent up quickly, it wouldn’t dry out. And it would be a damp old night!

Once the tent was up, I went out for supplies, beer mainly! Upon my return, the tent was still soaking wet, and even after having a shower, it had only just about dried out!

The joys of camping at this time of year!

I might venture into the centre of Strasbourg tomorrow morning before I set off. I’ll see how much of a detour it is first! I’ve been here before so I’m not that fussed if I go or not!

  1. I love those tree lined routes. 82 miles! do you just pack up your ailments in the saddle bag and go? I think you ought to leave that Brook’s saddle to a museum. Alsace! I’d love to go there.

    1. They are nice all the tree lined routes, they seem to have them on the canals as well as the roads!
      I must admit that this is the first tour in a couple of years where I’ve felt so good, perhaps I’ll have to keep that bag firmly closed!
