November 11 Hike

Dear Walking Friends,

This week's hike (15km), will take us from Lardy to Breuillet-Village in the Essonne department. Your faithful leaders will be Anne Marie and Jean Groussin and yours truly. On the way we will pass the amazing XIII/XIV C. gothic church of St. Sulpice de Favieres. The pace will be moderate. Those who wish to walk more than 15 km can extend the hike five km to the station at St. Cheron.(map provided).

I had originally put Savigny le Temple on the schedule but family events prevented me from doing a reconnaissance walk. We will do that walk another time.

Travel info: RER C6, train ELBA, from St. Michel/ Notre Dame at 9:12, direction St. Martin d'Etampes, zone 5, to Lardy, arrival at 10:01. This train passes through Bibliotheque Francois Mitterand at 9:20.This is where Anne-Marie, Jean and I will board, in the last car. It is a good idea to arrive early enough to find the correct departure quai.

Trains return to Paris from Breuillet at 15:21, 15:51, 16:21, etc.for a trip of about 50".

You will need a picnic lunch, water, rain and sun gear as usual. Coffee, chocolate and spirits are optional and always appreciated.

See you on Wednesday with a smile on your face.
