Padstow 🇬🇧 Bon-Repos-sur-Blavet

Padstow 🇬🇧 Bon-Repos-sur-Blavet

In 2016 I entered Narbonne, France by train from Barcelona. France 2016. That was my first bicycle journey into France. And boy did I enjoy it. Since then, I’ve had the ‘big itch’ 🦧 to go back.

As with most of my trips I really don’t plan much. A ticket to somewhere and a direction in mind is about all the planning involved! On this occasion a friend has offered the use of their caravan, in a barn, in the middle of France. So, with that, that’s my route. A big loop through central France.

First time cycling with a drone. DJI Mini 2. I’ll see how this fairs, as not just the drone but the controller is bigger than the drone plus 2 batteries.

Here is that journey summed up with the tweet from each day and photos.

Padstow to Plymouth Ferry

Good riding if not damp… Camel Trail 3 hrs to Bodmin Parkway station 🚂 On #Plymouth Hoe for my ferry’s arrival 🚢 Smooth crossing from @BrittanyFerries to #Roscoff. Even @GWRHelp came up trumps with a large #bicycle 🚴‍♂️ carriage 🤠 #france 🇫🇷 #europe 🇪🇺

Roscoff Ferry to Taule

Soon onto the EuroVelo 1. Trying to be as European 🇪🇺 as possible. Wish it was easier, though 🧐 Still a #European by heart 💙 Finished the day by finding a great #wildcamping spot in a woods. I was setup by 1600 🤠 #bicycle #cycle #france 🇫🇷

Taule to Poullaouen

I set forth 🚴‍♂️ back onto the #eurovelo 1 meandering south, somewhere! 🤠 The old railway station/sidings make a great spot for lunch 🥖 🇫🇷 🥖 & throw up the drone too. Some say stealth camping, I say secluded camping 🏕️ #djimini2 #fujix100t #bicycle #cycle #france

Poullaouen to Bon-Repos-sur-Blavet

In the UK 🇬🇧 I shop in a German 🇩🇪 store. In #France 🇫🇷 I shop in a German 🇩🇪 store … too familiar! Perhaps I’m in the wrong country 😳 Spent 30km on a Voies Vertes (Greenway). Like a #EuroVelo but unused by tourists 👍 #voieverte #bicycle #cycle 🚴‍♂️
