biking log book – Day #4 – a haunting in the Rue de l’Aumônerie !

with 4 comments

On February 21, I began the third phase of my virtual bike trip through central France.  For Phase 3 of my trip, I plan to bike in 12 days from Exireuil to Magné just west of Niort.


Day #4 of my adventure followed a virtual path along a country road, past large fields, over the Sèvre Niortaise River, and into the town of La Crèche.
