  1. Thanks NormanH I feel very privileged to have been able to do it, not just time and money, but health and fitness too. As a 50 something I am very aware of my mortality and am grateful for every day that I can enjoy.

    Now Its my chance to have 5 weeks in the lovey Vendee before I have to go back to reality and work.

    have a wonderful summer everyone :-)

  2. Well we did it 545 kilometers over 6 days down the Brest nantes canal. It was a really lovely experience and we managed to stay at some really lovely places along the way. From B & B's with swimming pools in the middle of the house to eating evening meals in little rural villages. I can honestly say we are looking forward to next year already .
  3. This is a link to the first section of our ride I am getting really excited about it now went for a lovely Sunday morning ride and found i need to get a lot more practice in before July.

  4. Thank you Cendrillon

    This looks like it should have what we are looking for thank you

  5. WE are using this route Vette :-) and where is your b&b because we will be looking for them on the way down

    We just need to get first night sorted really in roscoff then I will look at finding places for each day after about 60 miles slowly done and enjoyed :-)
  6. Thanks Sue

    Unfortunately yes Sue we are arriving at 9.30 pm so was hoping to find a B&B as close as we could to the port not knowing the area and not wanting to cycle out at that time of night.

    Its difficult because of having to take the Ferry on the days we need its was the best option.

  7. My husband and I enjoyed our first cycle adventure so much that we are going to do it all over again this year. However, this year we are starting from Roscoff and ending in Vendee.

    What I would like help with please is are there any bed and breakfast or small hotels near to the ferry port that will accommodate our bikes and us.

    Any recommendations appreciated TYIA

    That last one is the first one and does not have all the route as I started on Endomondo but it ate my battery too quick so I changed to Mapmyride. They are not in route order either sorry.

  16. its not a working chimney Kong its been mostly blocked from the bottom and bees get in through a small hole on the side of the chimney but there is now a not small hole in the fire place where the bees are getting into the house.
  17. Thank you ALL

    I was thinking about lighting a fire bur then realized the chimney is capped so they would def come down

  18. Yes DerekJ I have got most of it on MapMy Ride but not sure how you would get to see it I did put it on Facebook though

    do you know how to put pics on here?
  19. Hi Anyone in Vendee know anyone who could remove the nest or get rid of it from my Chimney?
  20. One would like to think one deserved a Wine or two but new roof means all the bedrooms need de molding and re decorating :-( as they are now dry. Hubby had to go back to England to work after bike ride so its up to me.

  21. WE Made it 250 miles over 5 wonderful days 2 of them cycling down the Mayene not bad to two very over weight over 50's lol

    have some photos but dont know how to post them any help appreciated.

  22. That looks an awesome ride Tom unfortunately we could not get any Ferries to ST Malo as they were all fully booked ,could not squeeze two more bikes on, people yes bikes no :-( so we are going from Caen but maybe next years route :-)
  23. I have been using MapMyRide so will probably carry on using that one if it works in France if not i think Hubby got strava or endomondo but Yes we will try to :-)
