In the end, the health crisis will have overcome my plan to travel to Spain and Portugal: it has been postponed until next year.
So this year I’m going to do something I also wanted to do and discover places I don’t know... but in France. The opportunity to see beautiful things that have so far escaped me but also to meet people and see friends again...
The journey will be shorter, about 1800 km over 6 weeks. A few days of rest, visits and sometimes very short stages between two points. Go by train to La Réole then join the Vélodyssée to Royan, almost go around Brittany. Finish in Nantes from where I should return by train.
My bike has changed little: it is now equipped with semi-auto mountain bike pedals that allow you to have your feet on the bike but also to easily put your feet on the ground. I ended up changing the damaged tire in Dubrovnik during the confinement ^^ I bought a rubber phone holder identical to the one I had . Anyway, just details.
For accommodation in addition to camping and possible room rentals I joined the network WarmShower and I hope that it will allow me to meet some nice people.
Below is the itinerary and the planned calendar... As usual everything can change :D
