Shane’s ride (not included in the total as it wasn’t a joint ride)

Our 3rd and final rest day. Steve took the opportunity to have a relaxing day at our accommodation, apart from having to fix yesterday’s puncture and do some washing. I wanted to get away early and Steve kindly woke me up at 5:30 as requested (cyborgs don’t need to sleep of course!) Unfortunately I fell straight back into a deep slumber, just managing to get up in time for breakfast at 8. Although later than planned I still went to the beach, stopping off in Taunton (Rue de, in Lisieux, it’s twin town). After some shopping (a fridge magnet, as instructed!) and a quick bite to eat it was back on the road, getting back only to shower and change, before riding to the nearest restaurant 5 miles away. We really are in the middle of nowhere!

A relatively short 65 mile day tomorrow as we want to get there early to check over the bikes, on Friday we can’t afford delays as there’s a ferry to catch. If possible we may have time for some sightseeing, but that will just be a bonus if so

Bon nuit
