Tonight I am in Reims, capital of the Champagne. Choosing an aperitif was a no-brainer. Reims has a stunningly beautiful cathedral and stupidly constructed cyclelanes, not to mention a hair-raising busy provincial road leading into town: only two lanes, no shoulder to ride on and lots of trucks. One would think that a country that hosts the world's biggest bikerace (and I rode part of a stage in opposite direction today) would take better care of its cyclists. Bonne nuit!
