The temperature seems to have really dropped today, but at least it’s been sunny!
I’ve spent most of the day, not following the Loire, but the many canals that seem to run along the side of it.
I’ve had some lovely cycle paths, that have for the most part been lovely smooth flat asphalt, that was until I decided to stop!
I’d already made my mind up first thing this morning as to roughly where I thought I’d end up tonight, and as the day wore on it looked more and more likely that I was right.
As I approached Sancerre I could see it wasn’t actually on the Loire or rather the “canal lateral de la Loire” that I’d been following. No it was high above at the top of the valley!
Knowing that there was plenty of places to stay here, I thought I’d be a bit stupid to push on, and besides I’d got it in my head that this was my place for the night.
Hoping to find a hotel near the canal wasn’t to be and I had to cycle the 130 metres, in a mile to find a hotel! I was glad to finish tonight!
