Today we join the Tour route, the main pilgrim route from Paris to Saint Jean Pied de Port. We cycled from Léon to Castes along the road and joined a cycle path to Taller where we picked up the Tour Camino markers. We followed them to Saint-Paul-lès-Dax and discovered the walking path isn’t always suitable for bikes. We met two pilgrims on the way – the first we’ve seen since Brittany.
We checked into our hotel (€80) and cycled to the bike shop to get them packed for shipping. It was strange leaving them behind and walking away.
We have cycled 507km and are now back on schedule to walk the last 100km to Saint Jean Pied de Port!
