2011-09-25 : Sainte Jullien du Chapteuil

We are just outside of Le Puy en Valey after a very interesting ride into this area full of old volcano cones and peaks. The views of these rolling hills are very beautiful with the hills dotted with villages with tericotta roofs and rich farmland.
Yesterdays cycling race was over in the blink of an eye but I did manage a few pictures around the finishing line when the main body of cyclists (ie the ones that lost!) Came in 10 minutes after the winners!

Lunch today was in a small town full of horses in a local competition. It was fun to see the young boys run with these small work horses past the judges.

Tomorrow we head north along the Le Loir.
