    ... a seeming uphill climb against the wind. After leaving Barbizon, we rode through the former royal forest and passed in front of the Fontainebleu chateau again. With better weather, the crowds seemed greater. The sun was out and the castle more photogenic. I did what I so often do, I took more pictures.

    A most horrible thing happened. I was walking with a lovely, older woman called Jilly who is not participating in the biking, she plans to spend the days on the boat. As we walked she said she was frightened of having a fall so was being cautious. I suggested we walk back a little and take a gentler slop up, which we did. On the way back she walked across one of the bridges and took a slip off a step onto ...
