This weekend, we followed a suggestion on the Transilien website
for a bike trip: in the Fontainebleau forest
. We took the train from Paris to the south-east limit of the forest (Moret Veneux-les-Sablons) and biked along the Seine river up to the northern limit of the forest (Melun). In total we may have done about 43 km today, but the main ride was about 25km.
BoD recently acquired a phone mount for the handlebars of his bike, and used an Android app called CycleDroid to track our movement. The data recorded by his phone with this app was almost identical to the data recorded by my Garmin GPS. This is the path we took
As we went through Blois-le-Roi, we discovered the Base des Loisirs, which had a beach filled with sunbathers and people enjoying a dip in the water.
Here are a few of the photos we took today. You can see all the photos from today's trip in the gallery
