Day 12, Carnac to Vannes

 Bike trips are fun, but traveling can be so darn educational!! I just count myself fortunate to be able to take these adventures that combine my love of biking with learning about the rest of the world. Almost like that spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down.

The past couple of days I've been writing about these huge vertical stones mounted in the earth by people over 2000 to 5000 BC. Thinking about the time and resources it took these ancient people to achieve such a feat, just boggles my mind.  

A bit closer to our time, but still centuries ago, our lunch stop was in Auray where Benjamin Franklin landed when he first arrived from the colonies to negotiate with French for help during the Revelonatary War.

After lunch, we left the coast a bit and headed inland where the roads were a bit busier and the separated bike trails become a welcome escape from the traffic. It was only 25 miles or so to the end of the ride with some moderate climbs. We found ourselves in Vannes and lingered over ice sundies until 4PM when our hotel rooms were ready for check in. All in all a very nice day.
