Thursday 23rd May. Les Andelys to Le Mesnil-sous-Jumieges. 66 miles.

Well I’m quite pleased with myself today! Not only have I done a half decent distance (by today’s standards) I managed to avoid any hills!

It wasn’t until this morning that I finally decided to head for Le Havre. One because it’s nearer, and two, I did think it would be easier going!

I made another new friend last night

I can’t remember the last time I came this way, but there’s definitely a lot more cycle routes!

Admittedly I’ve never stuck as close to river as this, but a lot of the routes were on the parts that I have cycled before. It’s a lot further in distance sticking as close to the river Seine as I have, but no hills!

I think I’ve got about another 40 miles to do tomorrow before I reach Le Havre, hopefully it’ll all be okay, as I’m booked on tomorrow nights ferry!

  1. Lovely job! How do you cope with those village names? They don’t roll off the tongue. Hope you get a nice kip over from Le Havre. You’re beaming man.
