Beaune to Chagny and back, 26km bicycle.

Rented a bicycle this morning and did the bike path headed south.  This is white wine country of famous names.  First through Pommard, then Meurault, then Puligny-Montrachet and so on.  The riding was incredibly much easier than on the the Veloscenic, possibly because it was really well marked, there was no wind, almost no traffic and some nice downhills.  This being Sunday, there didn’t seem to be much open in the little villages but the guy I rented the bike from told me that there was a Sunday market in Chagny.  I made it to that just as the market was finishing up.  Best lunch option seemed to be half a rotisserie chicken straight of the truck and a glass of good Aligote white.  After a greasy lunch with some Beaufort cheese and a second glass of wine, it was off to the train station for the 12 minute ride back to Beaune.  Then headed to the Wine museum, which wasn’t all that great, but I had a combo ticket from going to the hotel Dieu museum.  Tomorrow, I’m thinking I’ll take the train 20 minutes north to Dijon, and do a quick exploration and lunch there.
