Beaubiere to Le Cherbahun

I ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธthe direct main road to Aubusson. An easy 35km to their municipal campground ๐Ÿ›‘ Closed on the 1st Sept ๐Ÿง I moved on ๐Ÿ˜ Which then seemed to be eternally up hill ๐Ÿคฃ 1st #wildcamp by a stream ๐Ÿ‘ Not the best nights ๐Ÿ’ค as the stream was loud ๐Ÿคฃ #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท #bicycle #cycle

… Aubusson, I had stopped at in June 2016. It just happens to be a cross over junction on my routing ๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ The little things on a bicycle trip ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™‚๏ธ thinking a full on hot shower (douche ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท) 1st in 4 weeks, scuppered! Deflated me a little ๐Ÿ˜ Lunch there, then bon voyage ๐Ÿ‘‹ #Aubusson

Le Cherbahun to Lake Maulde

It’s mighty cold in the mornings 5ยฐ this one ๐Ÿ˜ณ But I’m up on the Massif Central. Present elevation 620m (2030ft). I’m very much off-piste regarding Voie Vertes & EuroVelos. Up in logging country. It’s all blissfully quiet commune’s ๐Ÿค  #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท #bicycle #cycle

… Following a V736. Takes me away from main rds and the automobile tourist route. All very quiet back roads, but it with that very lumpy โ›ฐ๏ธโ›ฐ๏ธโ›ฐ๏ธ lots & lots of climbing! But then charge phone/camera etc. on the decent with my SON dynamo hub โš™๏ธ

… This morning I lost a glove liner. Just enough to keep the fingers from freezing off โ˜บ๏ธ It was very โ„๏ธ I was fuming all day about it ๐Ÿ˜ค Found in sleeping bag that night ๐ŸŽ‰ The simple joy these finds bring to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Lake Maulde to Chatelus-le-Marcheix

I head out of my #wildcamp just after sunrise 0730 ๐ŸŒ„ Not as cold as the previous morning, but a climb is still more than welcome๐ŸŒก๏ธ A nippy wind ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ and a cemetery shelter serves as a wind break for morning coffee ritual โ˜• All quiet here โ˜บ๏ธ #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท #bicycle #cycle

… I was hoping for a photo with an impressively big pile of logs ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ but the light was never right! I’ve had to make do with a impressively big pile of sticks instead ๐Ÿง

… Before turning a little south, then bearing westerly for a new route I stopped at Chรขtelus-le-Marcheix for ๐Ÿšฐ I then noticed the sign for a municipal campground. As I made the steep 1.5km โฌ†๏ธ, all the time thinking, it’ll be closed …BAM nearly empty. Have I found a gem?

Rest day

Yep, a gem ๐Ÿ’Ž of a municipal campground ๐ŸŽช Took a rest day after all the climbing ๐Ÿคฃ My excuse! It was nearly deserted. Off the main tourist route helps ๐Ÿ‘ Got a short hike in๐Ÿšถโ€โ™‚๏ธ#bicycle #cycle #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Chรขtelus-le-Marcheix

… Municipal campgrounds only need to do the basics right, then they’re perfect. โ‚ฌ5.50 per night ๐Ÿ‘ Piping hot๐ŸŒก๏ธshower ๐Ÿฅฐ

Chรขtelus-le-Marcheix to Burgnac

Opposite day to my rest day … climbing & more climbing โฌ†๏ธ Pro-cyclists say, I’d the legs for it! ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ— I thought going through Limoges would be flat near the river, I was wrong ๐Ÿคฃ The route was parallel to the river, but that was about it ๐Ÿ™„ #bicycle ๐Ÿšฒ #cycle #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

… Photos limited due to wanting to get the hell on the otherside of Limoges while there was still light to find a rural #wildcamp spot before nightfall ๐ŸŒ’ Didn’t help a diversion I ignored ๐Ÿ›‘ then had to find my way out as no way through ๐Ÿ›‘ without the climb back up another hill ๐Ÿคฃ
