Stade de la Route de Lorient
The home of Rennes football club is the stade de la route de lorient.
It has recently been renovated and has a capacity of 31 000,which is not bad for a town of 200 000.
I used to always love coming here to watch stade rennais, bu would often spend my time watching the other team.
Thurs 16th March ? Rennes - France
"Monsieur the Students are revolting."
Get to road the venue is on for 8.30 students blockading it with burning wheelie bins COOL some workmen led us through the back streets to be confronted by the other end of the road also blockaded. Not so cool, after some negotiation with the they let us through and thats where I now sit typing this up, waiting until 13.30 so we can get in it's now noon Aaahhh!
"They've blocked off both ends of the street"
The municipal worker pursuaded the students that the vacant looking English bloke should be let through their barricade or they'll be no show tonight. Thankfully they agreed and I had a very quiet street to park on.
"Wake up Pete"
This is part of the workers rights march by the students of Rennes. This pik is through the windscreen of the bus as they filed past banging drums, using loud hailers, Whistles, and generally shouting. Pete didn't wake up despite this going on inches from his head. That boy can sleep for England!
"The City itself"
Like the complete fool that I am I forgot my camera and I could have got some great pix this place is very quaint with loads of well worn in buildings and a lot of history. I will endevour to get some of the pix Pete got on his phone. Ah well im learning about this VT mallarkey.
