Day 29: Besançon to Belfort

Monday May 2, 2005, 110 km (68 miles) – Total so far: 1,831 km (1,138 miles)

Great scenery along the gorge of the Doubs for our morning ride, then it was onto rolling hills in hellish heat this afternoon. It was a longish day in the saddle by our standards not helped the youth hostel at Belfort looking like it belonged in Beirut, so we’re camping again in a really good municipal site with views of the fort.

We arrived quite late at the campsite so had a mad dash to the local supermarket to pick up something for dinner. The campsite here is run by a nice character with a large friendly Alsatian dog that roams the campsite. We’re now in the Alsace, perhaps Alsatian dogs are from this region?

The road followed the river for most of the day
