Left Versailles at 9 and drove a couple of hours to first stop. Picked up lunch things – fresh peas in pods, big fresh radishes, olives, baguettes, avocado and a Camembert. After that a killer hill to the Observatoire de Triel-sur-Seine at Triel-sur-Seine. Then up and down all day into killer head winds. The sun shone from 12.30 – but really hard riding cos of wind, although many who are 2, 3 or 4 times my age struggled much more than me :-)).
Mum heard lots of songbirds maybe a blackcap or nightingale – loads of wild flowers – profusions of violets and cowslips. For the last 20 miles Ray and Tom were Heros and carried panniers of the lamest riders (not us!). They have earned their beer. Normandy looking very pretty…
