Trawling the internet the other day – my work distraction method – I came across an interesting blog on www.alastair.humphries.com about ‘micro adventures’. This seems to involve spending a weekend in a challenging activity such as cycling or hiking.
Why not try a cycling weekend in France trying out some of the Tour de France route? We are not that far from Mont Ventoux if you really want to test your stamina and there are plenty of other smaller mountains to practise on first! Take a look at some cycling posts in our Blog to get a flavour of what’s possible. If you prefer hiking there are countless trails here for all levels of proficiency – we have plenty of info on routes at our house.
Flights to Nimes, Marseille and Avignon mean a French micro adventure at Chateau Colombier is a real possibility.
