Rennes to St Malo - local train?


146 miles from Nantes to St Malo, or 2 days worth of cycling I'd guess. How about we get the train from Nantes to Rennes and then local train or cycle distance from Rennes to St Malo?

Corail lunea?

Sleepr train from Narbonne, close to Bezier? Gets us up to Paris for under £20 if we book early enough. I've never travelled by sleeper but would love to give it a go.

Search for corail lunea sleeper train or details. I can't add the link.

Planning for the big trip

An evening at the titanic planning for the big trip. Mike is worried about dangerous wild boars, james says he is not worried, and am taking a first aid kit.

North Wales Coastal Path

Getting ready for the North Wales, Coast Cycle Path on a cold and wet December day. Mike is clearly not happy with Jeffs choice of mountain bike (tyres too noisy).

Hello chaps I'm thinking of changing my bike for this, as I will no doubt need all the extra room, to carry all of that Geordie's equipment and those extra long delicious french sticks.

My other choice is this bike but as I wont be bringing the good wife I may get lonely up there. I've been told by a reliable source, that the placing of the wife in the front of the bicylcle was used as an early form of satalite navigation. It didnt catch on.

Well. 2 weeks on, my (Mike's) dodgy back is about healed and I'm planning an easy 15 miler tomorrow. When will web wizard Jeffrey parker sort out the blog header and allow James Penny to post something? Route meeting at the Old Titanic this Thursday, 8.30!
