The rain arrived late yesterday (Thursday). There were a few spots as we neared the end of the ride alongside the Canal Lateral de la Loire so Stephen”rushed” ahead to the campsite in Decize to get the tent up before the heavy stuff started – and just about succeeded! But it then set in for the night. Looking out at the grey skies and the growing puddles this morning we both reached the conclusion that a judicious rest day was in order.
The following shows the progress that we have made with overnight stops indicated.
We will shortly be leaving the Loire and heading more east towards the Rhine and Germany and Switzerland.
