EuroVelo 1 - a muddy day on the bike

A rainy day. Not like pouring, but quite constant. Only canal, but really sandy. My bike and me got all dirty. I changed plans to be in a BnB. Gorgeous, for very much not a lot of money. But with a late checkin. So, I took the opportunity to take us to the carwash. The bike was good as new and I got my shoes as clean as they could get.

Lots of stops along the way to find cover. And very remote, no people for ages, no reception. I was quite spooked, when all of a sudden there were two dogs sort of waiting for me. They looked at me, I looked at them. Didn’t stop, but got slow and passed them. They followed me. No aggressive chasing, but definitely followed. I got a lot faster until I was at the next street crossing. They were no longer there.

After the car was I went to a little pub. And they were really friendly. All older guys. The owner gave me a postcard of the pub, so I would remember it.

Overall, great day! Only problem, my back brake basically no longer worked at all.

Day 49

The day started with a breakfast in a wonderful place. Didn’t get to eating really as the host was quite inquisitive or let’s say we had a good conversation.

Kept the ride short, as my bake break really didn’t work anymore and I had to get it fixed. Brakes not working with a heavy bike like this is not possible, specially with hills. Mor‘les, a bike shop in Morlaix was great, fixed everything! Thank you!

Continued up the coast. And man, it’s beautiful. Stopped at a camp ground in Primel. Kindly asked the lady to get a spot a bit off all the RVs. And that’s what I got. A beautiful view! Well, until one of them parked in front of me. I slowly get a bit allergic to them. Ended the day with oysters, moulds frites no succession. Perfect!
