Bicycling France’s Atlantic Coast: Favorite Photos

By Maggie LaCoste

I’ve been home a couple of days now, and I am having a great time sifting through all of my notes and photos from the trip.  I took over 1,000 photos during my two week trip, three days of which I took very few photos due to the rain.  I thought that I would share some of my favorites with you, and then I will follow up later this week with my overall impressions of the bike route.

Hope you enjoy!
