Stage V Slider
Gateway to France.
Exit at junction 11A of the M20 straight to the check-in booths
After crossing the channel on the train we stopped at Cite Europe for the night
Address: Boulevard du Kent, 62231 Coquelles
|La Mailleraye sur Seine:
We have struggled through the fog on the Somme, visited Etaples Military Cemetery and have arrived for the weekend to view boats and if it’s nice for a decent bike ride.
After a day dodging and getting caught up in #gilletjaune protests we eventually found a place to rest tonight. It’s been interesting to say the least.
We managed to escape from Guilberville and have returned to visit Lancelot and Merlin. Stopping here for a long weekend as there is the chance of a rugby game on Sunday.
|St Philbert De Grand Lieu:
They say it’s nice to return to familiar haunts. We last here in March and had tyres fitted. Today’s route took us through St Nazaire and over the Atlantic bridge.
We have eventually arrived in Richelieu, just hope the Cardinal is in to receive us
We have returned to the peace and quiet that is Cellefrouin for a couple of days to plot our course south towards the sunshine.
Back to the wonderful town of Montignac for a few days pause before we head south again..
We have managed to leave the rain behind and have entered Lot. Looks like we might be stopping here for the night. Supermarket next door, fuel station just down the road and a super tourist office in town
