Cycle Touring Day 163

Just a very short spin around Gennes today, pretty much just to the boulangire to buy bread, but I did cross the bridge and pop up to the church at the top of the hill again. There was one interesting occurrance though when another cycle tourist arrived at the campsite on a three-wheeled recumbent - I'd never seen a three-wheeled one before! A jolly nice chap who also has a touring website. I had a spin on his bike, my first time ever on a recumbent, and it really is a nice way to cycle. Something I'd never considered before really is that on three wheels, you can pretty much cycle along at a snails pace and still keep moving. Handy for climbing!
