Saturday – Burgundy: Beaune to Dijon


66.3 kms

Doreen and I are in beautiful Burgundy for the weekend. We put back-packs on and left Beaune to spend the night in Dijon. Today’s ride went along a quiet road through a narrow forested valley before approaching a tough climb then a descent to the Canal of Burgundy. The last 20 kilometers was on a fantastic, newly paved bike path beside the canal. Great route.

Dijon is the capital of Burgundy and a pleasant city to stroll about in. But after a
couple hours wandering around we rushed back to see the Tour de France on TV.

Total distance 5,812 km

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.
