Market day in Revel. Say Cheese!






A regional vintage car club visited the chateau

Citroen were the first mass produced front wheel drive cars. These are the very rare six cylinder models. We're talking heavy steering!

After about a week of bicycle riding and recuperation I started to get the itch to get up to Paris. Shipping the bike back from the south of France seemed a hopeless cause so, away I went at the crack of dawn. I had no particular plan except to enjoy the scenery at my pace instead of rally pace and stay off any main roads even though my GPS tried at ever turn to contradict me. After a while I gave up and would stop and buy maps of the region I was heading through. This part of France is very underpopulated. I could ride for 30 - 40 minutes and see maybe three four cars. And now that the rally was over I had perfect weather too!

The St. Foy abbey-church in Conques was a popular stop for pilgrims around the 11th century. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conques
