We then loaded up the Merc and set off for France where we found Lake Annecy, a spot which was obviously sculpted 1000s of years ago so that people could stroll around its banks on a Sunday. Throw in Moules Frites and it was a very good visit.
On the drive home most of us fell asleep. Sid fortunately did not and decided to break up the journey with a very extravagant hot chocolate at a Geneva Country Club
When we got back to Coppet there was just time for me to put my bike together before retiring to the sofa for a Sunday afternoon snooze. Constructing the bike left me with two niggling worries overnight. One, I did not have a pump to take with me and would have to risk trying to get to 20 mile away Laussane without a puncture. Here I am sure there will be a bike shop where I can buy what I need. Secondly, the handlebars were not actually secured to the main frame. They were wiggling about all over the place. Again, I would have to try and remedy this in Lausanne.
A wonderful Sunday but I can't help admitting that I am a little nervous about the 250 miles to Milan. Today was incredibly cold and with a climb into the mountains ahead, things are sure to get challenging.
Miles Cycled: 0. Still not off the mark.
