Last bicycle ride in France...

It was a nice day yesterday, full sunlight although the temperature was about 9C at the most. Took off for a nice slow ride counter clockwise from Boulogne-Billancourt, up the hill after Chaville/Viroflay into Velizy, and off downhill to Jouy-en-Josas, up to Saclay, detour to Chateaufort looking for the ex-Nortel office (which I did not find), down to Gif s/Yvette, Bures, Orsay, Palaiseau, Anthony, Clamart and back to Boulogne via Issy-les-Moulineaux. Sounds far, but 60km at the most. 61km on my Polar S625X. Twas a nice ride, relaxing, and burning about 2500kcal on the way, but at the same time nostalgic. I dont know when I'll see those sceneries open air... its definitely different to see them on a bicycle rather than in a car. I had a little fall but when I was stationary trying to balance the bicycle on a pedestrial path. It was stupid but no problem, nothing was damaged except for a bent bottle carrier on my Felt F1X. Anyways, its all over now, coming Thursday, packers will be here and the bike will see the new day in Shanghai!
