When you are a student in a 'boring' town like Caen, you spend a lot of time in front of your computer. Everyone is complaining that there is nothing to do. So this afternoon, when they were all in class and I had a truckload of free time, I decided to become better acquainted with my bike.

I must have looked silly with my orange scarf clinging to my neck for dear life, but I wasn't the only one - the sun was out again and plenty of people had the same idea.

This is what I saw:
