Cycling to Omaha Beach!

My second ride in France. I covered 57 km from our house, via La Cambe to view the German cemetery (slide show). It has over 21300 German soldiers, many unknown.

From there I went on through the country side down towards the coast through one lane villages like Asnieres where I stumbled across a memorial in a field from a P40 crash site from the D-Day invasion.

I went down along Omaha Beach for another look at the memorial site:

From there it was up a steep climb at Verville-Sur-Mer, down along the coast at Grandcamp-Maisy and home to Isigny-Sur-Mer.
