Pornic - Nantes

Kilometres today:


Kilometres since the start: 2017

Yesterday I decide to go straight to Nantes without stopping at the Pellerin: no answer from the warmshower and no time to look for something (and no network in my tent while the 4G is of uneven quality at the bar) so I look where I’m sure I’ll find something, in Nantes. I find a small, cheap hotel in the center of town.

Since yesterday we left the Vendée, and now we only have to follow the signs for Vélodyssée and Eurovelo 1, and a bit further EuroVélo 1 and 6.

I thought I was pushed by a west wind... no luck the wind follows the Loire, but in front of me ^^

I arrive in Nantes where I’ll have two full days of sightseeing before leaving the Velodyssey and heading west and around Brittany.
