Field Notes From the Road in Europe – June 2019

Our booking of the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard gave me the idea and impetus to plan this trip.

Starting in Calais, I would take the ”scenic route” to Luxembourg via the Ardenne in Belgium, then a bit of Germany before crossing back into France to stay in Strasbourg. Then, the Vosges Mountain and the Jura. From the Jura, a circuit of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Then four days riding on the “Route Des Grande Alpes” including forays into Italy followed by a stay at Menton on the Med (with another foray into Italy). From there, I passed through Monaco to ride the south coast to Marseille to meet Amanda and Zac.

We had four days together to watch the Grand Prix and enjoy Marseille.

Afterwards, a ride into the Camargue, then to Avignon, then long rides each day to Vezelay via the Ardeche and Calais. I enjoyed capturing this trip photographically. – JC
