Catching up

30 07 2013

Today is our first rest day after eight long days of riding. For the couple of people out there checking in, I am sorry that I am behind in writing.  It seems like most our days have started around 9 am with arrival to the next town between 10pm and midnight.  In between there is a lot of riding, but also too much time getting lost, looking at maps, and figuring out how to proceed.  We thought that navigation would be difficult, but not as paralyzing as it has been.  Luckily, we have had amazing scenery to dull the frustration.

Day 3 Cherbourg to Dinan.  Our 122 mile planned day became 140 miles due to continued navigational difficulties.  Our finish point of the day was the Aqueduct of Dinan which was the same bridge ridden across by the riders in 1928. I continue to be amazed by the beauty of France.   We have gradually been working our way south from the Normandy region to the Brittany region.
