Horrible hilly first 10 miles, then completely flat beside canals. Met up with the cyclist I’d met in Nevers campsite.
Legs feeling better, good forecast so a moderate ride mainly along beside canals but then sone nasty farm tracks.
Gallery of photos of some of Nevers historic centre.
Plan for 30’ish miles with a 48 mile option if feeling OK. But a closed-down campsite resulted in 65 miles – feeling tired.
Aiming for a shorter ride today (tired legs) but 1st campsite didn’t impress so it turned into a longer ride again.
Longer ride today as it was all pretty flat, no significant wind and a good forecast. Through Orléans, Joan of Arc “country”.
Further Upstream on the Eurovelo 6 cycle path (Loire à Vélo secrion), from Amboise through Blois to Muides s/ Loire.
Upstream on the Eurovelo 6 cycle path (this section also known as Loire à Vélo), from Langeais to Amboise.
From the banks of Le Loir to the banks of La Loire. Weather still pretty miserable but ride mostly dry.
Shorter ride starting very early hoping to avoid the rain. Mostly successful and good but shorter ride.
Further south, through Le Mans with a stop for shopping Weather worse than forecast, showers and cold.
Terrible weather forecast, not the weather to go cycling in so sitting out the wind and rain and reading.
