Coubortiges to Celles-sur-Belle bike ride (24 miles)

We’ve said that Sundays will not be a work days, so we took ourselves off to a Vide Grenier at Lezay this morning. It was nice and small, about 50 stalls and Roger bought himself a chestnut roasting pan for 3€. He was really pleased as he loves them, just need some chestnuts now.
We then popped back home, made a picnic and set off to Melle to join the Ruban Vert to Celles-sur-Belle, but we did cycle round Melle for a bit as we couldn’t find the start of it!! I blame the map reader :) Once we found the Ruban Vert, which was once an old railway line, but is now a lovely off road route for walking and cycling between the 2 towns, we had a lovely flat ride. Not much to take photos of as the ride was mainly on a country path so there’s just a few taken in Celles-sur-Belle.

  1. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday. And I love roasted chestnuts, but it is a bit early for them yet. x

  2. I am glad that you are having a rest day, think I also have to make a plan like that. This looks like a really pretty area and of course all new to you so more interesting. I also love roasted chestnuts, sounds a cheap roasting pan to me. Keep well D & N xx
