A very pleasant ride through pine forest as we headed south just inland from the coast. We stopped at Saint-Girons-Plage for a drink and came across Rico Velo bicycle repair shop where we had Fi’s front inner tube replaced as my repair didn’t fix the leak completely. Rico was a great guy and gave us some tips on cycling to Taller (on the Tour pilgrim route to SJPDP). After a picnic lunch we soon got into Léon and checked into our hotel (€88) which to our surprise was next the the restaurant Rico recommended. We cycled 54 km today.
We had a superb vegan meal, home cooked with fresh ingredients. We had found a lush oasis in the vegan desert of France!
The hotel was better than yesterday’s for under half the cost!
This was interesting too…
We’ll be crossing over to the Tour route from Paris tomorrow.
