Two weeks to go until the Randonnée des Roses

Filed under: Places,Village Life — Tags: , — Mary @ 21:13

We are gearing up for our yearly Randonnée des Roses which will take place on Sunday 7th June. The weather promises to be good so we are hoping for a large turnout. Chris has planned the routes of the four circuits and the best places to offer refreshments along the way. Posters are going up in local villages, and Pascale, Claire and Marie Antoinette are joining other villages’ randonnées to hand out flyers.

Our group today

This morning we tried out the 8km circuit, the shortest walk with probably the best views. We set off from Cortambert and followed the grassy tracks to Toury where we turned right to tackle the steep climb to Bray.

There were lovely views over the valley

After another steep climb through the vineyards we were glad to find ourselves in the shade of the woods along the ridge….


before coming down through the meadows and heading for home.

It’s a fairly easy walk with lovely views and we hope the less serious walkers will enjoy it. So remember, the Randonnée des Roses on Sunday 7th June starting at Cortambert Foyer Rural.  A warm welcome and lots of refreshments are guaranteed. We’re working on the sunshine.
