OK, a bit of tailwind, but: Only flying is nicer!
Equally strong headwind:
No headwind but counter-storm, climate catastrophe!

Suddenly Lake Constance!
Two days before the scheduled departure from Marseille, I received the message that my booked Flixbus was cancelled, as a replacement I was offered a departure long after midnight (instead of 5pm).
I then put together a journey with six trains from Nîmes to Bregenz - and with a… read more

Today was a leisurely finish, lots of bike paths, almost no inclines. But strange fruits on the way ...
The highlight, the Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct (aqueduct) dating from the first century BC or AD, is also on the back of the €5 bills.
I don't want to taste the mushroom.
Nîmes, Roman again: The Arena… read more

Millau-Florac is a scenic stretch along the Tarn and Jonte rivers. It goes past bizarre rock formations (where vultures sometimes fly) and through small villages where you won't get anything on a Sunday in October. It's good that yesterday I stocked up on a ham and cheese baguette, apples, bananas and biscuits.

Beautiful ride along the Tarn River, with quite nice climbs towards the end.
Once there was a tunnel where cyclists were not allowed to drive, but there was no way of bypassing it. It's good that it was only 230 m long...
On a hill there is a workshop that makes great figures (e.g. Asterix and Obelix… read more

In the morning with a SNCF train from Bayonne to Toulouse. I had to reserve a place for the bike on the train.
In Toulouse it rained at first, but then it became friendly.
The city where I am today is called Albi and is very beautiful, the Episcopal Quarter is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
