|On the road at last|
We've finally grasped the nettle and shoved off on the big tandem ride to England.
Now two days and around 200 km in and it's so far, so good. We left Mortagne yesterday morning, just after a heavy rain shower and then had sun for pretty much the whole day. We holed up in a Formule 1 budget hotel for the night, which was cheap but right next to the motorway.

The cycle route is well marked, even if it varies widely in quality. We've had everything from smoothly paved off road track to unimproved muddy lane and even a section closed completely, making a detailed map essential equipment.
|Through La Rochelle|
The forecast looks reasonable for tomorrow and we're feeling in good shape, though tired. 10 hours of sleep should do the trick. We'll add photos after we get back. Travelling light means having only the Kindle for blogging. Night night...
