La Garenne to Angeac-Charente

Enjoying more paths on the La Charente River ๐Ÿž๏ธ through Angoulรชme. A fair size city too ๐Ÿ™๏ธ Fortunately, this time the route ‘does’ follow the river! ๐Ÿ™‚ Employing wet weather ops ๐ŸŒง๏ธ hide! Easy day riding & squirreled away by 1630 ๐Ÿค  #bicycle #cycle #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

Angeac-Charente to Cognac

Onto the flatlands & vineyard country ๐Ÿ‡ Nouvelle-Aquitaine. Mostly along La Charente River ๐Ÿž๏ธ Looking for a rest up the next day. Found at a municipal campground in Cognac! Closes the 30/09 ๐Ÿ˜ณ 2 nights it is then ๐Ÿคฃ I found the empty quarter โ›บ #bicycle #cycle #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

… Think I’ve secured my #wildlife photograph ๐Ÿ“ท of this trip #swans La Brassiaud River #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

… Rest day – I had an idea while cycling my bicycle ๐Ÿšตโ€โ™€๏ธ Use a lemon to clean my chain! Citrus ๐Ÿ‹ is a natural degreaser, so why not! Also acts as a clothe too ๐Ÿ˜† I don’t liberally go nuts with the oil. A small drop per link. A rinse off & I was impressed ๐Ÿค  #bicyclechain

Cognac to Le Mung

Cognac, past Hennessy & Rรฉmy Martin. The establishments have a look of Willy Wonka & the chocolate factory… mystique! The weather ๐ŸŒค๏ธ is playing fair once more. I feel it may not last ๐Ÿง #Wildcamp spot found late in the day ๐Ÿ˜ 1st real mossies ๐Ÿ˜  #bicycle #cycle #France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท
