Phew, what a scorcher! A very hot and flat ride north to Chalon, we’re camping again tonight on the banks of the Saône river, although that’s not as romantic as it may sound because our view is not of Chalon itself – but of the large and dirty local dockyard.
I have a nasty split in the sidewall of my rear tyre, probably caused by the combined weight of all the luggage and me. We really must find a cycle shop tomorrow. I wore my shorts for the first time today. I hope it stays sunny.
