My Bike Tour Of Europe

Nantes to St. Florent-Le-Vieil – Sept. 8

It was Sunday and sometimes Sundays can be difficult, because most businesses are closed.

But while en route I heard church bells that reminded me of my time in Venice with Kevin and Robynn so I had to make a little video to preserve the memory.

The weather and scenery were so beautiful that I had to show it off with my first video while on the bike. I hope it isn’t too shaky.

After arriving at the campsite, that was very conveniently located just across the bridge from town, I went to check out the old Abby that has since been converted to a church.


Then, on the recommendation of the campsite concierge, I went to the L’Olypique Cafe where I met the lovely Auretie and had a very good Croque Masseur. A frozen pre-packaged meal that has French cheese which made it delicious. On Auretie’s advice I went out to eat at Le Valentino for some more of that French cheese. This time in the form of a pizza.


Day 4 – $26.05- Sept. 8
$7.20 camping in St Florent
$2.85 beer – free croquet masseurs and cafe from Auretie
$16 pizza and wine at Le Valentino’s
Total $89.10

The total spent to-date is $89.10 and the average to-date is $22.28

    Hi Jim,

    I’m just catching up with your amazing cycling journey through Europe. Really enjoyed your first quick video of the church bells. The sounds bring the town to life. I’ve always wanted to do some sort of bike tour through Europe, so now I can do it vicariously through your trip! These days I’m mostly exploring historic neighborhoods in Phoenix on my heavy hybrid bike. I still have my touring ten speed from 1983 for longer rides along the Phoenix canal system.

    Best Wishes,
