Musings about fun between my legs

2014 Tandem Through France

After my Southern Route cross country trip, Don and I began taking about together – on the tandem. We settled on taking another trip to France.

After much discussion about taking an organized tour, a supported tour, or organizing a tour ourselves, we decided to try to something on our own. A friend recommended we look into the Tandem Club of France to join some of their weekend trips around the country.

We joined the Tandem Club and found two weekend rallies not far outside of Paris and then made B & B arrangements nearby. In between, we had flexible days to tour and cycling in Normandy. After our weekends with the Tandem Club, we had a week with no definitive plans except to visit with our longtime friends, Christine and Patrice.  They invited us to their beach house for some of that time, and great adventures ensued!

Here is a chronological archive of my blog from the entire trip.
