Jonas’ Bike

Our home for the past two weeks was in the town of St Remy de Provence.  Lots of restaurants, ice cream stands, pretty architecture and friendly people.  However, as has been mentioned there is not a lot of activity.

In an attempt to solve this problem your producer borrowed a bicycle.  Jonas was skeptical of my plan to attach the camera to the handlebars of his bike and go for a spin.  He was also agreeable and an accommodating.  And about half my size.

For those of you who ride bicycles the implications are clear, for those of you who don’t the clouds will part as you watch.  Only about 20 seconds made it.  But it was earned in an hour of madcap adventure.  Wobbly does not begin to cover it.  And in traffic no less. Some of it had to be used.

The remaining and more enjoyable parts are images of a place I will always remember fondly.  Hopefully, they will encourage you to go see it for yourself.  Or remind you of a time when you did.

    Very pretty place, looks like the weather is wonderful. I think I can see the bicycle problem from here… you should make sure that both training wheels are on the ground at the same time. This will give you the three-point stability platform you require.
