Very happy to be able to leave at 7.30am even though I’m camping : mattress, sheet, bag, tent... all folded in an hour and a half. And had a bite to eat too, but no coffee.
At the start, the waistcoat is necessary, I’ll take it off after the coffee in the next town.
The sky is cloudless for the first time in a week, but it won’t last. The landscape : wheat as far as the eye can see, some kind of plateau and I will end up riding on one of them to get to Palencia.
It’s Sunday morning and a lot of cyclists pass me, saying jokes or words of encouragement that I don’t understand. So I laugh, because it’s nice to hear these little words along the road ! he wind is rather cool, when the sun is hidden by the clouds. But it is also rather favourable, it pushes me towards my goal of the day where I arrive around 1 pm.
