Loire Valley tour report

Since a few others have been posting their recent trips to France, I figured I'd share mine.

I was near Tours in March for a conference, and decided to get some cycling in. The travelogue is quite long; suffer through it if you want. You'll laugh. You'll cry. Or maybe just roll your eyes.

Plenty of decent photos, though:

Apologies in advance for not having the best navigation menus (from the photos, "Read about the trip" gets you back to the main page, where you can get to the other photos).

Nice photos, although it might be more interesting to include yourself and the bikes in some of them.

You know, that is so true. Everyone (family and friends) keeps asking, but I just never got around to taking a picture of myself. I totally regret it, especially since the rented bike was lavender.
