  • Day11


    July 21 in France ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Letztendlich sind wir um 15h10 in Léguevin gestartet und nach anfänglichen Wirrungen in den Vororten von Toulouse gut und ganz ohne Staus über die Autobahn über Montauban, Brive, Tulle und Clermond-Ferrand (ab dort Landstraße) bis nördlich von Vichy um 20h30 nach Digoin gekommen.
    Kurz hinter Vichy gab es einen ziemlichen Schrecken, als einem Belgier mit kleinem Anhänger vor uns der Reifen von der linken Achse absprang. Timon hatte den Reifen schon ein paar Kilometer beobachtet und ich hatte gerade zum Überholen angesetzt. Zum Glück wurde er nach vorn geschleudert, also weg von uns. Sowohl der Belgier wie wir konnten nach kurzer Zeit anhalten, nachdem er auf der linken Achse funkensprühend versuchte zu bremsen. Sie hatten auch noch ein Kleinkind an Bord und waren ziemlich mit den Nerven fertig. Wir wollten eigentlich helfen, aber durch Zufall kam nur 2-3 Minuten später ein Feuerwehrwagen vorbei, der gleich Blaulicht anschaltete und anhielt. Also konnten wir weiter.
    Nach einet weiteren halben Stunde hatten wir es dann geschafft. Schnell essen gehen und dann ins Bett.

    Gannay sur Loire to Paray la Monial

    June 25, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    After 30km of rolling roads - the first real hills we've faced - we hit the tow path again and it was smooth sailing.
    At Bourbon-Lancy, we happened upon the local fresh marché and had the bright idea to buy some freshly cooked ham to put in our baguette for lunch. So we asked for 4 slices - well he saw us coming - they were the thickest slices I've ever seen and we walked away with 645gm of very nice ham. Hard to believe that we actually managed to squash most of it into one baguette.
    It was great to roll into Paray la Monial. We checked out the park for a small 2nd lunch (guess what of) and then enjoyed the town markets. A South American busker was playing the pan pipes, which we love, so we settled in with a panache to listen, before booking into our accommodation, which is right in the centre of this lovely, lively town.
    Many thanks to Knud and Erica for suggesting this top spot and the ride along the Canal De Centre.
    71km today, total 831km.

    Paray le Monial 1

    June 26, 2017 in France ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

    Paray-Le-Monial is a pilgrimage town. As well as having the 11th-12th century Romanesque Basilica of the Sacred Heart and numerous other religious treasures, it is the home of the"visitation nun Margaret Mary " and a notable pilgrimage destination. We met some Irish travelers at breakfast this morning, who come every year for the festival of the Sacred Heart. The town is beautifully maintained and decorated with flower boxes. Parks, cloister gardens, outdoor churches designed with plane trees in the shape of a cross, etc make it a very pleasant spot for the religious and heathens alike. Unfortunately, the well regarded Hieron museum was closed today.
    We are staying at Inter-Hotel Hostellerie Des Trois Pigeons which is located perfectly, very nice, spacious and good value at AU$105 per night.

    Clermont-Ferrand - Paray-le-Monial

    August 23, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Boah! Sind wir geschafft! 😥😰
    Heute ging es über 165 km 🚴‍♀️ von Clermont-Ferrand nach Paray-le-Monial in glühender Hitze🌞🌞🌞.
    Landschaftlich war die Gegend eher langweilig. Landwirtschaft, viel 🌽 und Sonnenblumen 🌻, gelegentlich 🐂 und 🐎🐎. Der letzte Abschnitt ging dann entlang eines Kanals, auf dem gemütlich 🛥 dümpelten und Angler 🐟 ihr El-Dorado gefunden haben.
    Im Hotel hat uns dann das Begleiterteam mit gekühltem 🍺 Überrascht. Mit Sicherheit die beste Idee 💡des Tages.
    Der Abend kann noch lustig werden 😜🤪.

    Die Loire

    May 5, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Auf wenig berichtenswerten Wegen sind wir gestern an der Loire gelandet und haben im dritten Anlauf auf direkt einen Campingplatz gefunden. Im Ort ist ab heute Kirmes. Und der Sommer ist da :)

    Day 9: 104km (73km)

    July 11, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Computer says 104km, Google says 73km
    :( so annoying as it puts my perspective of distance out. But at least i know and maybe I'll find someone who knows how to fix it.

    We left earlier today! 9:30, it was so much cooler! We had a good plan, stop every quarter for a drink. The first one was in a tiny village that we almost thought had no shops! But we found the tiny boulangerie with the locals having a chat. The second stop was in decise, we found a nice restaurant on a harbour just outside of the city so decided to have Sunday lunch. We were so out of place among the well of middle aged and elderly French crowd, two smelly, sweaty Australians. The food was great, Michelle's cocktail was more of a juice though. We were tossing up a nap under a tree or a coffee to keep us going and decided on the coffee.

    We had 37km to go, but didn't find anywhere for our last drink stop so were getting really tired by the end. The last stop was burbon lancey. So happy to finally see the camping sign! I really like that the campsites around here all have an open grass place for cyclists.

    I started to talking to an older woman with gray hair, I asked her , (in French) if she was working alone. I was a bit tired, She looked really confused then I realised and corrected myself, traveling alone! She was, and had been through massive central (=mountains!). I told her we are are to ardeche and it's super hot there, she said wisely, don't worry it will cool down soon. She was right! The next day was cloudy and cool!

    We swam in the pool then watched the soccer with the most annoying children in the world taking and playing. No one scored by full time so we left. And no noise after that so we assumed Portugal won.

    The last photo is my mouth. I think I've had tonsillitis since leaving so Michelle was trying to take a picture of them. Without success
