Well, not if this was your ride:



For some Aussies, that ride won't even get the to their front gate.



naah, the dirt track bit was just the short link between the two villages (not on the route nationale!) for gas, after that I didn't take any pics except the chateau.

I'm too much of a technophobe to be able to post up interactive maps & stuff but if you want to look it all up, I rode that first bit of dirt, then from champs along the river to Escolives, up throuhg Jussy to the N151, to Coulanges sur Yonne, D21 along the canal & a couple of dead end trails looking for a way over the ridge to the next valley, Licheres (the chateau is between Lucy & Licheres) Avrigny, Asnieres sous bois, Vezelay, Asquins, sermizelles, Voutenay, St Mor where, in desperation I turned round & went to Avallon to find some food cos all the little village places were shut!), I had a leisurely lunch with a good book & then just zapped home up the N6 cos I had to be home in time to get changed & be back In vermenton to pivk the kids up from school at 1/2 past 4. 150odd km I guess.

Can't ride today cos wednesday is kiddies day so I've got them & now N1 daughter is now big enough to ride pillion, N's 2a & 2b are too big to fit in the top box...

Can't ride tomorrow either cos I'm off to Paris to look at a car with Madame.

friday will be spent resting in preparation for the week end, i'll try & get some pics of the trip, but as I will be kept busy just keeping up...

next week maybe

something like that.

Does that work? I can't make a map appear, only the link!

This is the best I could with your route directions:



Now that looks a lot more interesting! And a good effort too.

But at around 142km, Nev does that before the sun rises. Others before morning tea. Me, by lunch time.
