      I admit, I was happy to have arrived. Because after two showers, and especially the second which lasted. Nothing was dry anymore. Even the phone was messing around. But this ride. Difficult though, worth it. The Chèze-Canut reservoirs are really worth a visit. By bike. Sure.Update: Cropping, and retouching photos.

      Mono mono. Toutou toudoutou. Mono mono. doggie doubts ... :-))
      Very refreshing hike in the Rennes countryside on roads that I did not really know. And test of single speed, single chainring, single handle of single speed brakes: 19 max.

      I should have waited a little longer, because it was when I got to the level of Word-mouse that it started to get severe. The path turned into a small stream rather quickly. And it was under a chestnut tree that I managed to shelter myself properly. Small passage through Lormandière where the water of the quarry is turquoise. Then return by the pond of Apigné. And again the drache at the level of the large blosne. My saddle bag held its seal well. A little less for the hanger bag. And my Décat 'jacket lasted for a quarter of an hour at most. Well it fell thick.

      Superb walk this Sunday in the Breton countryside.
      If I had to do it again, I would first go through Mont-Dol which is worth climbing. Then descent to Vivier sur mer to breathe the fresh sea air. Then pedal to Saint Benoît des Ondes.
      Then to finish Saint-Suliac. This very pleasant little port. Where you can swim in the estuary: La Rance.
      It still looks a lot like a classic seaside. Honestly I recommend this pretty bucolic corner, and maritime and without major difficulties for the legs.
      Wikipedia: Saint-Suliac has been classified among the Most Beautiful Villages of France since 1999: this port village of Clos Poulet, typically Breton, is located on the Emerald Coast, on the right bank of the Rance estuary./!\ Warning /!\

      What a week. My phone "disappeared" during my last mission.
      So I bought a secondhand "super phone" which, it would seem, was a beast at the time. And which made great photos: the LG G4. You speak. It's worth nothing this stuff. Ha. I'm not saying the screen looks great. All in one is always a bad solution. I do not recommend this choice. Strongly. Nothing beats a camera, a GPS, a telephone, all in 3 different materials. Each has its own function. Each device's battery lasts for weeks. Or at least one. Quality is not an argument. You pay for the quality you want. Good ok. It is heavier. But when it comes to technology there is no miracle. In short, there are no photos of the lake because the battery was puffed before arrival. That plus food poisoning (slight, but annoying) with U canned vegetables. That I also advise against suddenly. It was not that great this week.
      In short. I went to the Trémelin pond. And it is true that the place is superb. Do not go there on Sunday it is full of people. And going around the path quickly becomes boring. Otherwise it's very pleasant, and the view is worth a glance. I fell in love with the coast of Talensac. In 41x28. I was a little light to climb. It is doable anyway. You just have to press harder. Until then. Good fireworks.
