France - - Contents -

Adam has been ex­plor­ing France for half a cen­tury, as a tourist, res­i­dent (Paris and Poitiers) and con­trib­u­tor to travel pages and guide books (Which? and the AA). In 2012, Short Books pub­lished France on Two Wheels, Adam’s ‘nar­ra­tive guide’ to six routes across the coun­try for long-dis­tance leisure cy­clists. On page 52, Adam plays the Ry­der Cup golf course near Paris- Le Golf Na­tional. “Of all the moun­tains of France, my favourite is made of sand, the Dune du Pi­lat, a golden mon­ster ris­ing at the mouth of the Bassin d’ar­ca­chon. I first went up it with a friend by moon­light; we had it to our­selves - the ef­fect was mag­i­cal. Run­ning down to the sea on a sum­mer’s day isn’t bad ei­ther.”
