Fri 4. Perl-Sinz to Bitche. 77 miles. Took my time getting started this morning, it was blowing a gale and raining! Luckily it only lasted an hour or two then the sun came out. Nice ride for part of the day along the river Saar apart from the puncture. It was nice to ride along a flat surface for a few miles. Back in France tonight for the last time, I then enter Germany and continue through to Austria! This rides a bit harder than I thought, mainly due to the hours of daylight, it’s ok riding in the dark in the morning because you now it’s going to get light but when it gets dark so early it’s not nice! Also had a strong headwind every day so far. The day finished with rain again!
