Have been cooped up in the house the last 2 days due to grotty weather , suffering from Cabin Fever abit. Had to get out on the bike before I went nuts! Went up along the Gorges of the rivers Cesse and Brian , past beautiful Minerve, and along the plateau above the villages of Minervois, descending down to the great wine village of La Livinière, with the cold rain stinging my face , all the rest of me was covered luckily! Wet when I arrived home , so into a very welcome hot shower with hot coffee and warm, buttered toast afterwards- yum. Felt good!
