Another lovely day of cycling, mostly along the Doubs valley A yummy breakfast in the chambre D'Hotes then some bike cleaning and maintenance before we set off. Mostly along the canals and rivers with a bit across country thru villages. Met a guy (Peter) along the way who cycled with us to Besançon. Checked into appt hotel and were pleased to find a washing machine. No hand washing tonight!! Besançon seems to have interesting architecture. Nice feel to the city.
Dole, then on to Besançon via the EuroVelo route 6, along canals, the Saone and the Doubs.
Sunny and quite hot at times. Thunderstorm as we entered Besançon but luckily it went behind the mountain and we missed it
