Overview

Another pleasant day of cycling. This is the last day of us being on Eurovelo6. Tomorrow more serious navigation. Tried to stop for coffee in a restaurant in a barge. No luck... Food only. But it was very cute inside! For days we have been following km marks on the Velo route surface. First noticed at approx 133km. We wondered what was at zero. Surprised to find today it was only a bridge, after much anticipation !!! Mulhouse extremely busy in afternoon but quiet after 7pm. Enjoyable day and evening.
