Travelsonabike2 France Thursday 19th-September-2013

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in France on Thursday, 19th-September-2013. Resson-le-Long to Nettencourt. 97 miles. Very late start this morning; I just found it so hard to get up. It was a combination of yesterday’s long ride and the fact it was a bit chilly outside. I was nice and cosy in my sleeping bag, so didn’t want to move!

The roads have been really busy, especially with trucks, so I changed my route today. I thought by staying on the N roads (national routes), I would be relatively okay. I knew they were busy, but I wasn’t expecting them to be quite as busy. And certainly not a single carriageway with no hard shoulder. The odd time when there was a hard shoulder, it soon ran out, or bicycles weren’t allowed on the road, and I had to go on a long detour!

The final straw came when there were roadworks, and half the carriageway was closed off. There was absolutely no room at all. I spent most of the time cycling on the grass verge, and busy traffic doesn’t normally worry me!
