Wednesday 9th October. Decize to Montceau-les-Mines. 73 Miles.

I’ve now left the Loire and am following the Canel du Centre, which seems another pleasant route.

In the end I was glad to leave the Loire, as I’d picked up another strong headwind.

I’m now heading in north easterly direction, well at least for tomorrow, which all being well should mean I have the prevailing wind behind me!

That’ll be the kiss of death now I’ve said that!

I got bored, or rather thought I’d try something different when I got to Digoin, where I left the Loire. And uploaded a live video to my YouTube channel, not too sure if I’ll do it again or not, I’ll see how it goes, and whether I can be bothered or not!

The weather forecast wasn’t as bad as predicted, and I only had the one shower! Which lasted for about an hour, but that was probably because I was cycling with it.

Oops!

I enjoyed my night under canvass last night and was hoping to camp again tonight, but there’s just no campsites around!

  1. I know a bloke who could renovate that old bike. Well, you’re on the road and in France, I don’t suppose you meet many cyclists.One thing about the video; we found out where you’re planning to go. The sunken boat reminded me of the Marchioness on the Thames. I wish you un bon vin blanc.

    1. Surprisingly there isn’t many other cycle tourists! Although I did meet a couple from Canada at the campsite last night.
      Haha! That maybe my destination, but how, or what way I go, who knows!
      At the moment I’m wondering if I could go via Geneva, then cycle up through Switzerland! But that might be a bit too much!
