Some gorgeous summer photos today from Jordan Weeks. If this doesn’t make you want to jump on your bike and ride for the horizon then you are a grumpy curmudgeon!
There’s nothing more relaxing than pedalling through the French countryside. It’s stitched together by small, traffic-free winding roads and open fields scattered with poppies, lush green trees and crops.
The French Pyrenees are breathtaking. Their huge green slopes are amongst some of the most picturesque in the world. Riding up their steep switchback roads with a heavily-loaded bike is made a little easier when accompanied by such gorgeous scenery.
After pedalling through the heat of the day, climbing roads that have a 6-10% gradient, and your legs are burning with lactic acid – The sight of Lake Annecy as you crest the summit of a French Alp is simply amazing, and definitely worth the effort.
They must be amongst the most photographed buildings in the world, but given the right lighting and weather conditions, it’s hard to resist pointing your camera at the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre.
