Photographer's Note

In preparation for my annual week of cycling somewhere-in-France I thought I’d dip into my archive from last year, when some 20,000 or so cyclists gathered in the idyllic town of Brantτme, for a picnic en masse. The town, on an island surrounded by the River Dronne, is often termed “the Venice of the Pιrigord” and is a popular place for taking a canoe down the river and over the weirs, especially on a hot sunny day. On this particular Wednesday, visitors must have been rather bemused by the sudden influx of cyclists descending on the town, along with music, food, drink and general merriment.

This is a view of the Pont Coudι, which dates back to the early 16th century, and which has without doubt never had so many cyclists crossing it as on this day!
