Bonjour mes aimes! For the first time on this trip, I was able to use the rest day to do a little exploration of the area. Originally, I intended these “rest days” to be days full of exploration of the small towns and countryside nearby. With my accident recovery, they have actually been rest days.
Today, I felt good enough and confident enough to do a small ride. I left this morning around 10:30 and rode for about an hour. I stumbled upon a route called the “Voles Vertes et Veloroute” which translates roughly to “Green Scenic Roads and Cycling Routes” Although not a dedicated cycling route, as you can see from the photo, it might as well be!
After a little web search after I returned, I found this information which basically outlines a comprehensive network of these routes throughout the country…… isn’t France cool!!

Couple images of my hotel today, super quite place! The rail to trail here literally runs right behind it up the hill a bit.
