Well that was an enjoyable ride! It’s been mainly downhill, plus I’ve had a tailwind for most of it. And to finish the day off, I’ve found a campsite!
I started the day off where I’d left off yesterday, following the canal du central, but after 3 or 4 hours I left that and was heading across country on roads. I think the cycle route that I’m sort of following does follow the canal, but according to my phone it was quicker to follow the roads.
I was back on the canal for my last 6-miles as I rode into Dole, so maybe I’ll be following it again tomorrow, I’ll have a look tonight.
I even had to slow down at one point today, I was catching a big black cloud up, that was chucking down the rain!

Dole looks a lovely old town. Would they get flooding there? Over a cup of coffee, my friend showed me photos of his vintage bike collection. I told him about your exploits. We ate jam doughnuts while you cycled 77 miles. He! he!
I suppose a lot of the towns along the rivers get flooded!
I hope you enjoyed your doughnuts, and didn’t make yourself ill!
