First, I would like to thank my new friends at Le Close d’Argenson in Bergerac! Merci beaucoup Pascal and Lauren! What a wonderful place to stay in the heart of Bergerac! Y’all were too kind to me!
Today was the first day I really enjoyed being on the bike. Up to this point, I have felt in survival mode. I’m still experinacing a lot of discomfort but the painful muscle spasms have subsided. It didn’t hurt that today’s route went through the a rolling hills and forest east of Bergerac and that I took it pretty easy in Bergerac yesterday….. maybe it was because I went to Easter Mass! As a result of feeling better, I have more photos from the route today.
Scenes from the road today:
Half way into my ride, I found myself in the middle of a mountain bike race! The course attendants keep telling me to turn onto the race course. They were apparently volunteers from the local village and had no idea the difference between a mountain bike and a touring bike….. each time the course crossed the road, I had to explain in french that I was not part of the race…. awesome practice!! By the way, the Monday after Easter in France is a holiday!
Entrance into my hotel for the evening.
The pony outside my door.
Tomorrow promises more rain! C’est La Vie!
