poetry and prose about place

biking log book – places I have never seen #2

with 8 comments

So far, my exercise plan is working.  I am biking on my stationary bike more often since I began my virtual bike trip from Lusignan, France to Sanxay, France, a total distance of about 14 km.

I have discovered several tools in Google Earth to help me, including a ‘ruler’ under ‘tools’ – this gives me the approximate distance from place to place!

Log Book: February 2, 2013

Area travelled:  from ‘intersection with road to Mangadon’ to ‘hill beyond Le Breuil’    20 minutes      1.6 km

Best view:  fence at entry to a farm road near Le Breuil

Notes: Great to be able to drive on the same side of the road as at home!!!


Total distance from January 30 to February 2: 2.8 km

    • Hi. Now that’s a thought. I’ll find out on my next bike ride and let you know. I’ll watch for down-hills too. Jane
