We have finally completed the French section of Le Tour de Manche a velo. The 400km trip must go down as the slowest bicycle ride on the route! Leaving St Benoit des Ondes, it was only 11km to our campsite Les Genets just outside Cancale.
The weather was miserable, so we stayed put in a mobile home for 3 days before just heading another 11km to Camping de la Fontaine on the outskirts of Saint Malo. We took another mobile home, this time a quirky purple version. Lovely.
We were very intrigued during another 3 day break regarding the sign outside the closed sanitation block, instructing campers to go elsewhere!
So, now it was only 7km to finish our cycling trip at St Malo. As we’ve said, it has been slow. Yet that is what we are all about. Sure, the route can be done very quickly, but why hurry? We are very lucky that we don’t have to.
So now it’s done, we will look forward to a respite from the bikes. We have loads of plans for the rest of the year and beyond. Some on two wheels. Some on feet and some with 6 grandchildren. Check us out and thanks for visiting.
