Went on a trip taking in Strasburg + Paris once. Didn't think much of what I saw, Paris was dirty.

That is all.

Cycling in France is delightful.

I've done it a number of times and the drivers are so pro-cycling.

A must for anyone who hasn't been over there.

Kerry.

Morzine, twice. This year we drove there, and it was great fun driving down there, but boy is it a long way. This year was the best week I've ever had on a bike.

Hitting Morzine & Les Gets next week, really looking forward to it. Did La Clusaz a couple of times last week, they have helpful signs like Hard and Very Very hard at the trail heads, they're not kidding did the 'hard' one and very nearly needed a change of trousers 5 km of so steep and twisty you can't actually stand up. Great fun.

Yeah the french can be a bit stereotypical, I keep forgetting how polite and well mannered absolutely everyone is in the UK, every visit I think I must have been mad to leave this idyllic island.

Edit: Damn quoted instead of edited.

Just came back from camping & cycling trip with family in Europe. Me,misses & 2 boys, one of which uses pull along bike trailer. Safely say France was great for cycling too. Germany was superb though.
