Cycling across the water – Traversée en vélo

photo_164_bac_cycle_pathWe have a book called (in French) Freewheeling from the Atlantic to the Black Sea  with photos of the Eurovelo 6 bike route that goes from Nantes on the Atlantic Coast of France to the Black Sea.  One of the bike paths really took my eye. In the photo, you could see this couple, with their bikes, crossing the Authion River near Angers on a little chain-operated barge. Could we resist? 
Nous avons un livre qui s’appelle En Roue libre de l’Atlantique à la Mer noire avec des photos de l’Eurovélo 6 qui va de Nantes à la Mer noire. L’un des itineraires m’a interpellé. Dans la photo, on voit un couple, avec leurs vélos, en train de traverser l’Authion à côté d’Angers sur un petit bac à chaîne. On n’a pas pu résister !

Last year, with some of my neighbors, I rode the Amboise to Saint-Nazaire leg of the Eurovelo 6. It took five days. We saw a lot of cool things, but not a self-operated bike ferry !
