View at breakfast


- pretty flat riding today next to canals or the Rhône

- Saw 10 or so other cyclists doing the viaRhona, but generally we are riding alone and enjoying the scenery

- No morning tea along the way today, but we did go off route and stop at a large shopping centre place in Belley, to get cash and Tom bought some straps to hold his backpack on the bike rack vs his back

- Lunch stop was in a park next to a river inlet Peaceful.

- interesting learning about the communal wood fired bread ovens in the area. Chatted with a local in his garden and we learnt all about them

- Arrived at our accommodation by 14:30. Yay. Time to relax.
