On my way to join up with the Chain Gang Bike Co., I stopped in:

  • Carcassonne-spectacular castle built into the hillside
  • Albi-yes, my cat was named after this town, but it is also known as the home of the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum
  • Toulouse
  • Chateauneuf-du-Pape—I had to pick up some wine from Mont Redon,         Cabrieres, and Beaurenard

Upon arriving in Angouleme, I met up with my fellow bike riders…mainly from Great Britain.  Each day we rode about 50 km and thank goodness we did because we certainly ate well.  The picnic lunches, traditional French dinners and wine kept us well fed. During our tour, we visited a number of wineries including Chateau Lynch-Bages in the Haut Médoc and rode into these areas and towns:

  • Les Eyzies
  • Lalinde
  • Ste. Foy la Grande
  • Monbazillac (home of the sweet wines)
  • Medoc
  • Haut Medoc
  • Montravel
  • St. Emilion
  • Blaye
  • Pomerol
  • Paulliac
  • Bordeaux
