Day didn't start well off. No coffee. Cold. Mosquitos. Strange camp ground, really nobody out there. Packed as quick as possible to get off going. But the #Garmin was full again and my laptop empty. Had to reset the whole thing and reconnect. If anybody has a tip to do it more effective, let me know. And I didn't get into biking. I was looking for coffee, nothing. In Sète I almost had a chance, but got into the strike. After Sète I finally got some in a great bakery. Long ride on the coastline, beautiful. But it's again a bit boring. I need to plan the rest of my route that I don't get into too many of these. Yesterday I got lost in La Grande Motte. A huge beach town. Terrible. You get in and out easily, but the in between is just a total confusion of direction. They try to get you onto cycle paths shared with pedestrians all the time, even though the road has great surface and is almost empty. I fall for it every time. Last day on #Eurovelo8, heading towards Bordeaux.

Back into the mountains. By now, I don't think it's a secret that I prefer hills to flat. Through a beautiful landscape with plenty of vineyards, up and down. I was following the V84. For half the time, then a turn into a long Voie Verte, a special cycleway. One never knows exactly when planning a route with Komoot. It was hinted that the path would be possible hard to bike. But opposite was true, hardpacked gravel and so many signs. A great day.
