Day 61 (31/7) - To the beautiful city of Strasbourg

We rode from Biesham to Strasbourg along more canal paths, around 75 kms. Even though we were still in the Alsace region we still never saw any vines, just corn and potatoes and very pretty canals. 

Strasbourg is a completely lovely city and our last stop in France for the holiday. Our hotel was just opposite their cathedral, the main tourist attraction in town. We were upgraded to a room with a view of the cathedral and the joys that came with it; buskers from early morning until night and the musical/ light show spectacular that occurred at 10 till midnight each night. Such a beautiful city and we were very glad to have stopped for more than just a few hours.

Figolu, the french version of squashed fly biscuits, cycle food of champions... well Reuben anyhow.

Strasbourg's little France
The cathedral is too big for our camera.

This french food is almost German, dinner of Six Meats on about 3 kilo of  sauerkraut. I feel so manly right now.
