Travelsonabike2 France Friday 13th-September-2013

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in France on Friday, 13th-September-2013. Neufchatel-en-Bray to Dieppe and back! 50 miles. I was up at 5 o’clock this morning, all ready to pack up and go. That was until I realised just how wet my tent was on the inside!

Should I push on and try and sort it out later or stay here to try and sort it out? Not being able to decide what to do (nothing new there!) I just had another cup of coffee! By chance when I went to the washroom the owner of the campsite was there cleaning. I knew he spoke a little English after talking to him yesterday. So I thought I’d ask him if there were any camping shops nearby, to which he replied the only one he knew of was back in Dieppe!

So after another cup of coffee, I decided to leave my tent and all my equipment here and just cycle to Dieppe to get some waterproofer. It’s an easy flat ride back along the London to Paris cycle route. The ironic thing is that when I found the camping shop it was right next door to the campsite I was going to stay at yesterday! D’oh! Hopefully, it’s all water tight now and will last the rest of the trip.
