Biking les baux

After preparing (but before consuming) the mechoui, Philippe and Catherine rallied the troops for a 15-km bike through the Parc Naturel Régional des Alpilles to a vista point facing the medieval village Les Baux-de-Provence.

In their words, Les Baux is a magical place of wide vistas, chateaux, odd limestone formations, and strong winds; the team hoped to see if we can climb half as fast as we did at our wedding.

Francis also provided a voiture balais (fig truck + broom) to pick up tired riders and lead the cars who would like to drive up the mountain. But we made it to the top on our own, in time for champagne!
