Tinteniac To Rennes

Leave a comment


The following morning was an easy start, we were getting back on to the canal tow path, which was just by the campsite. Again, the day’s ride was quite easy in terms of cycling and navigation to the next destination, the city of Rennes.

The campsite at Rennes was north-east of the city centre in the Parc des Gazelles. Again, it was a municipal site. As in a lot of French sites, the pitches were separated  by hedging, which I like as it makes your plot a bit more private.

The plan was for us to stay here an extra day and go and explore the old quarter of Rennes, as my son and his girlfriend had recommended it from their visit the previous year.

Well, as all good plans can, and do, change, this one certainly did! It’s amazing how three inconsiderate, noisy idiots can spoil an otherwise peaceful campsite for the rest of us. As it looked as though they were going to be there for a few days, and because we didn’t want to risk another sleepless night, we decided to give up on the visit to Rennes and move on.

So in the morning, we packed up and set off for Vitre.

I've had a passion for photography for as long as I can remember and have been running my own photographic business for many years. This also carries over into my personal interests: I love the great outdoors and enjoy nothing better than to be outside taking photos and combining this with my hobbies of cycle touring, camping, backpacking, canoeing and just being out in the wilds, or as the Australians say "beyond the black stump" farther into the outback than the city lights.
