    Alencon

    May 18 in France

    Changed plans for today as everything booked up by motorcycle fans coming to the Le Mans GP.
    Before we left Honfleur we had a last walk down to the harbour to eat Pain au Chocolat and drink our 4.80 euro a cup coffees! So it was at 11am before we set off to fill up with petrol where we met a group of English classic car owners. We were charged over £130 to fill up the tank at the automatic pump then some time next week we will get a refund of the difference between what it actually cost and £130 which I think is a rip off. I hear Asda UK are going to try the idea 😀
    Now we are in Alencon 85 miles from last nights stop. The centre of town is quite pretty but we found nearly everywhere closes early on a Friday which is weird. However we did find a nice market and a really good Algerian restaurant where we had a great meal.

    Bagnoles de l"Orne

    September 13, 2017 in France

    Day 23 of our 2017 European rides was a rather challenging one, with lots of hills, headwinds and passing showers. Our riders all worked hard to complete a long day in the saddle, finally arriving at our hotel in Bagnoles de L'Orne at around 5 pm. The town is a beautiful spa and casino town and the hotel is luxurious with glorious views from our window. Unfortunately we will only be here overnight before tackling the longest ride of the trip tomorrow. The team is starting to get weary but they are all rightly proud of their achievements.Read more

    Alencon to Bagnoles-de-L'Orne. 56 km

    September 18, 2017 in France

    Today we found the hills!!! 56 km and it was up and down virtually the whole way. Good for what ails ya! But not so good for the knees 😲. We think that'll be the worst of it 🤞.

    Lovely sunshine all morning 🌞 and tho it cooled, the rain never materialized. We stopped to put on, and take off layers 26 times (or so it seemed). Lots of riding thru forests today...very nice.

    A flock of small sheep joined us for lunch.
    Chateau Carrouges very impressive tho we didn't go inside. Lots of those on the Loire later ☺️.

    Staying in Bagnoles de La"Orne. Thermal baths are its claim to fame...a French Baden-Baden but doesn't hold a candle. Pretty phoney really. Totally different from anywhere else we've been. Happy with our hotel tho... not so much with our dinner. Had the house specialty...smoked sausage on a spit (more like smoked s**t on a stick) 😛. So not all French food gets a 👍.

  • Day72

    Heute ist nicht viel Spannendes passiert. Den Nachmittag bin ich auf einer Landstraße durch Wälder gefahren. Aber es war immer noch sehr hügelig.
    Ich hatte mir im Internet einen Campingplatz rausgesucht und bin dann auch zu diesem gefahren. Als ich bei ankam bekam ich mit das der gerade nicht bewirtschaftet wird. Da das aber einfach eine Wiese, die durch Hecken in Felder unterteilt wurde, war, stellte ich mich dann trotzdem einfach rauf. Ich wusste ich könnte diesen Berg jetzt nicht mehr hochfahren, den ich runter gefahren war, um den Zeltplatz zu erreichen. Und des Weiteren hatte ich hier eine Sitzgelegenheit, Strom und Wasser.
    Zum Abendbrot machte ich mir mal wieder einen Nudelsalat, der leider nicht so gut wurde wie der letzte.
