The Ride

Photographer Angela Terrell (who is making a printed appearance in issue 1 of Lodestars Anthology, out this September) has spent the past week cycling around some of France’s most stunning, vine-filled villages. She has shared with us some of the candid, mid-ride shots captured in Ribeauville, Colmar and Bergheim; places where time makes little sense, the wine is faultless and character abounds. If scenes like this don’t make you want to hop on your bike and bask in the brilliance of provincial life we’re not quite sure what will.

It should also be noted that when we last got in touch with Angela she was just sitting down to dinner - comprised of a glass of rose and a sundae. And let that be a piece of glorious travelling advice. When travelling in unfamiliar land and fully embracing the adventurous spirit there is absolutely nothing wrong with acting like a child. Having fun, belong a tad irresponsible (on the nutrition front at least) and letting feelings, freedom and emotion guide you actions. Happy cycling.
