Geese by water

4th September 2022 Garry McGivern’s Europe-2022 bicycle-tour video; episode-11. Garry’s taking the day off from cycling and spending the day in Bray-sur-Seine. Garry decides to stay put as it’s a Sunday and everywhere in France closes for the day. And why not? After all, the campsite is good, and he’s camping on some nice soft grass.

As he heads out to get some supplies before the shops close, he heads down to the water and gets confused between ducks and geese. After all, they do look alike!?!? And he goes viral on Facebook.

This is a two-day video after Garry wakes up on the Monday with the shits, although he does put it a little more politely. But thankfully, by the evening, he’s feeling a lot better.

He then has to contend with another storm, although this one is rather more intense than the last one he had in Monnerville a week ago.

Tent and bike

3rd September 2022 Garry McGivern’s Europe-2022 bicycle-tour video; episode-10. Pont-sur-Seine to Bray-sur-Seine. Garry starts his day the way it ended yesterday with some off-road cycling, which is doing Garry’s back no good. But one good thing comes from it as Garry decides to sort his saddle out. It’s hard going on the rough trail, and Garry’s anaemia is evident with his shortness of breath and struggling to talk at the same time as cycling.

After a tough ride this morning and the threat of rain, Garry has an early day. And although it’s a short day, it’s very productive. And maybe this morning’s ride has got to Garry as he starts talking jibberish, and even he can’t decipher what he said.

Vans bike tent

2nd September 2022 Garry McGivern’s Europe-2022 bicycle-tour video; episode-9. Le Lac d’Orient to Pont-sur-Seine. It’s a lovely sunny start to the day as Garry leaves his overnight stop at the campsite next to lake d’Orient. But after a couple of miles, Garry decides it’s probably a good idea with his worsening health if he changes course.

After a change of direction, Garry passes through Troys, which he wasn’t very impressed with yesterday. But today, he finds it quite delightful and discovers an intriguing sculpture. His change, of course, sees Garry following canals all-day. And although it’s been easy riding, he’s had enough of his new saddle and decides that he needs to do something about it. Even though it’s been an easy day following the canals on smooth asphalt, the end of the day is something different.

Path stream tree

1st September 2022 Garry McGivern’s Europe-2022 bicycle-tour video; episode-8. Nogent-sur-Seine to Le Lac d’Orient. Garry struggles right from the start of the day, as his anaemia seems considerably worse today. Plus, he has a reoccurrence of an old health issue that might be cause for concern. And he’s really not feeling that good.

And to top it all, the new saddle that Garry thought was okay a day or two ago isn’t. He’s now finding it rather uncomfortable and painful. But despite being uncomfortable in the saddle and struggling to ride as soon as he encounters any sort of hill. Along with him generally not feeling so good. He still has a good ride and finds himself cycling on a pleasant Greenway beside the Seine.

Garry was glad to finish today. And as seems to be the case for much of this trip, Garry is to worn out to film or do very much at all once he’s pitched his tent.
