10 July St. Malo to Portsmouth
We enjoyed a very good meal almost next door to the hotel, another early rise in order to buy tickets for the ferry and then wait in the queue until they decide to let us on. As they have a special room/cabin/store for velos there seemed no reason to keep u...

8 July La Chapelle-Caro to Saint-Meen-Le-Grand
We had a very good meal at Le Petit Keriquel last night. This morning was dry and we had a long sweeping descent down to the Voie Vert, our route north. A great cycle path, smooth Tarmac on a bold railway line, which meant as we climbed, very gently we had ...

A good nights sleep and good breakfast at the Chambre d'Hote. It was raining when we got up and still raining when we left. All togged up in waterproofs. Luckily by the time we got to St.Brevin-Le-Pins the rain had stopped, we had plenty of time for Photos ...

4 July Les Ponts-de-Ce to Ancenis
We had some very good Pizzas last nigh and a few beers at the campsite. Mainly back on the Loire today, a few little offshoots including one very long and steep hill, which in this heat was a little challenging, but other cyclists had stopped on the way up,...

2 July Savonnieres to Saumur
Great camp site, at Savonnieres, Only Camp, had a good meal just next to the campsite. We decided to visit the gardens at Vilandry, just a few miles along from Savonnieres. They are stunning. Well worth the visit, there was so much variety, too much to repl...

30 June Amboise to Chenonceaux
An excellent meal at L'Epicurie, sat outside with the massive walls of Chateau d'Amboise towering up just across the street. This morning we visited the Chateau, another very different but amazing place. Stunning views along the river, an great entrance and...

9 July Saint-Meen-Le-Grand to St. Malo
Left hotel and straight on route on lanes and very quiet roads for a while. Cooler than before but still good. Gained height and had lovely views over wide area of farmland and woods. Soon we were on a Voie Vert proper, ie old rail line now used for cycling...

7 July Guenrouet to La Chapelle-Caro
A very pleasant stay and meal at the local Brasserie in Guenrouet. Breakfast provided by John P in our mobile home. Crossed the river, turn left and we are back on La Velodyssee, which Ann and I did 2 years ago. The day started warm, but after Redon we had ...

5 July Ancenis to Corsept
After a very hot and sunny day, we had a very wet night followed by a showery day. We had decided that to ride over the bridge at St. Nazaire, it would be better on Sunday, hoping for fewer lorries etc. this meant getting as close as we could by Saturday ni...

3 July Saumur to Les Ponts-de-Ce
Met John & Jenny at the Tourist Information Office and set off. It was already very hot, luckily the first part of the route was often shaded, but then we got onto a riverside road with no shade, that became very hot. We passed through some beautiful small ...

1 July Chenonceaux to Savonnieres
An excellent meal last night, some good wine, went to bed early, and we were woken by the regular trains screeching past regularly through the night not 20 metres from the tent, though at times we thought they were coming through the tent. Spent the morning...
