After saying my goodbyes to Paris, which will certainly be making an appearance in future posts, I cycled north, eager to discover what else France had to offer. In the City of Light, I was shown greater kindness than I expected, and I’m pleased to say the majority of French people I encountered on my trip were warm-hearted and helpful.
I found the country to be reasonably bike-friendly. While far from ubiquitious, decent cycling lanes did exist along many roads. Roads without bike lanes were generally quieter R (regional) and L (local) routes, and I didn’t encounter heavy traffic. Drivers were also quite used to seeing to recreational cyclists- this is the home of the Tour de France, after all!
Until next time, France!
