I entered an historic town (all are in France!) Segrè. A market was in full swing. People … I exited quickly 🤣 I ended doing a whopping 96km (big for me 😱) due to not been able to find a #wildcamp spot. An old 🍏 orchard had to do just as it ⛈️⛈️ #bicycle #cycle #France 🇫🇷
Unknowingly I didn’t take any photos on route this day 🧐 Except for my #wildcamp spot 🏕️ I did stop early after my previous big day. There’s more room in there than it looks 🤠 Too close to a road, so not the best night’s sleep 🙉 Can’t win them all! 🥳 #bicycle 🚴♀️ #France 🇫🇷
Le Lion-d’Angers to Montreuil-Juigné
I’m on the V43. V for Velo and route 43 🤓 It’s a mix of Vioe Verte, canal paths and quiet back rds 🚴 I stopped for shelter at Montreuil-Juignè after getting caught in a heavy 🌧️🌧️. Booked into a municipal campsite on a Sat! 😐 After a kebab and 2 cans of Dutch beer I’d left …
Montreuil-Juigné to late river spot
… The place was peaceful until a party of 3 old well looked after caravans turned up at 2000. Kids running around screaming, music on. By 2115 I’d packed up and was cycling out 🚴 Just turning dark. Anywhere was better than there! River path 4.5km away ⛺ 🤫 #bicycle #France 🇫🇷
Late river spot to Prieure de Saint-Remy
1st puncture for what must be 8,000kms (not on this trip 🤓) The smallest thorn you could ever imagine 🧐 I count my blessings as it’s the front tyre 😅 Inner tube out, new one in. Patched the tube later over lunch 😋 I meandered 🚴 the outskirts of Angers and joined the EV6 🇪🇺
