Another two and a half thousand mile Tour de France - Calais, Paris, Toulon, Carcassonne, Miélan, Vieux-Boucau, Calais - but this time on bikes ... well, with bikes!

Our first leg (not including the 5 hour sleep-over chez Liz in Paris) was to pick up Adam from Toulon on the Mediterranean. Adam had spent the previous week here with Raf - seemed like a fair swap for 4 nights under canvas in Wales! Click here to view this Page

Another fabulous welcome (and more pastis) from Emma and Doug in a peaceful spot just down the road from Notre Dame du Cros near Caunes Minervois, just north of Carcassonne. Adam and Mark camped out; we got the guest room! Click here to view this Page

From Carcassonne we headed on to l'Auberge des Grandparents - i.e. Laura's Mum and Dad's home near Miélan in the Gers. Cycling in to the town for our breakfast croissants certainly sharpened the appetite. Click here to view this Page

Adam and Mark spent the whole week capturing, incarcerating and unintentionally torturing the local wildlife - lizards, grasshoppers and crickets. The kittens were being enlisted to keep the lizard population in check after our departure! Click here to view this Page

From Miélan we headed to the coast and back to Le Vieux Port, Messanges. The bikes came in handy for getting around the campsite and out to the beach, but we also took a couple of longer excursions, the most significant being the 25km round-trip for lunch in Leon. Adam fell off his bike, but not as acrobatically as me! Click here to view this Page

As the boys will tell you, the main reason for coming to Messanges is, of course, for the sea and sand ... Click here to view this Page
