Arles to Cavaillion, Monday May 9th
"Three sights, one hill, but no sheep"



We got up early, because Monday was a day of hard riding with plenty of sights and hills. We reluctantly left our hotel's charming little courtyard in Arles, then climbed on the bikes. Lynn and I rode with Adam this day, though we split up briefly -- I rode the "default" route which was 65km, while Lynn and Adam bravely took a detour which added on two extra hills!

We began with some flat roads with pretty scenery. I worked on perfecting my "taking one-handed pictures while bicycling" technique. I got pretty good at it, although some of my scenery shots are a bit blurry. I had the most fun taking behind-the-back pictures of the people riding behind me. Sometimes they were crooked, but lots of them came out quite nice -- see?

Very cool so far.

The hill top town looks very interesting.

I think it was a good thing you rested your knees.

Blurry or not, still enjoying them (as well as the detailed posts).

Mountain Bike Clues

Some time in the next two days, I am going to buy a bike. This being Fort Lauderdale, there is no excuse to pay list price. You just have to know what you are looking for.

Unfortunately, I don't know what I am looking for.

1. Given your experience, what kind of bike would you get for riding around the country side?

2. What features would you look for?

3. What would you be ware of?

Thanks a bunch!

Re: Mountain Bike Clues

Unfortunately I know nothing about mountain bikes. I like to ride, but don't know a whole lot about equipment yet. I'd probably ask on a message board, or there are a couple of LJ biking communities ("bikes" and "cycling").

Good luc, and have fun, that's the most important part!
