A family cycling along a row of several hundred year old plane trees, on the ex-towpath of the Adour river (Saubusse - Landes - France). In Summer, plane trees exfoliate their bark - not extending enough because of its rigidity to stretch according the tree's growth - in large irregular flakes which come off. Famille pratiquant le cyclisme tout au long d'une rangée de platanes pluricentenaires, sur l'ex- chemin de halage de l'Adour (Saubusse - Landes - France). En été, les platanes exfolient leur écorce - qui ne s'étire pas suffisamment avec la croissance de l'arbre en raison de sa rigidité - en grandes plaques irrégulières qui tombent au sol.
