Day 21 Montpelier to Mirepeisset

Why are there no easy days in the tour de catchweasel?

Today should have been one instead we are riding into a block headwind. Again. We may be punishing ourselves with the riding but there's no reason why we can't enjoy ourselves in other ways. A nice lunch with a glass of the local tipple in Bezier is in order. Perfect.  And the scenary is quite nice.

After 70 hard, hard miles we call it a day when we see a sign for a campsite. This is more like it. It's quiet, not windy, next to a river, no Mosquitos, and 5 mins walk from a restaurant. Richard treats me to steak, local Chardonnay and calvados. Heaven.

74 miles
11 average (it was windy)
46 max
6 hours 30 mins
