... bit cool,. It was great to be on our bikes again, and although making only a couple of small wrong turns, and a couple of decent climbs once we were on the road, we arrived at the Australian War Memorial, between Villers Bretonneux and Le Hamel.

After settling in we took the bus on Thursday into the city (€1.20) the centre piece being the Notre-Dame Cathedral; 145m long and 70m wide, it is ...
