First (cold) ride of the year : Tarascon and Foix - France

Hello
Cold (I like the heated grips) ride with my daughter to a good coffee (chocolate for her) in one of the best pub of the city of Foix. Some views of Tarascon when coming home by the sunniest road of the valley.

in front of the "Café Gros"


View of the halle and Foix Castle


Highest part of the "allées Vilottes", road to central Pyrénées


The low side of the "Allées Vilottes"


interior of the "Café Gros"




today hot drinks, other time good beers...


In the bar we can find this among strange or heterogeneous objects :




or a very long pirogue to the ceiling of the first floor

Halle Vilottes


and then time to go back



Tarascon sur Ariège


my daughter and some other rough guys, two of the three riders I meet this day


In front of the prehistoric park, the T120 seems to be a very little bike when I ride it (I'm 1,95 m tall around 6.43 feet), but I'm very comfortable on it.


The restored church of "Notre dame de Sabart"




We wait for some snow this week so I think that winter will finally begin...may be long time before spring and other rides.

Nice pics. That pic where your bike is parked next to the outdoor tables looks like the town ( can't remember the name but on the way to Sarlot) where we parked the car and later got a ticket for I think parking on the sidewalk. Never saw a copper. Guess we won't be going back to that town.

Masquerading every day as a normal person is exhausting.
