Day 41: Besançon to L’isle-sur-le-doubs, 40 miles.  

Today’s riding was very different, we are entering more of a mountainous area and there are rock walls on either side of us, so for a few hours this afternoon we were able to ride in the shade. We rode 18 miles and got all of our shopping, then rode another 10 and had lunch in a little clearing by the trail.

Being on tour feels good, the simplicity of riding bikes, buying food, navigating trails and finding campsites is pretty relaxing. It’s a very simple life, but not without it’s stresses, it’s just a new kind of stress. We’re happy, and I’m really enjoying the adventure thus far.

Amazing shade on the trail.
