Arived at the ardeche gorge, looks like a canoeing mecca. I've been racing the support van a bit today with a flat road and a slight following wind. 103 miles and tents up by 4.30pm. Paying for that a bit now though, I think I may have to crawl to bed.
So the med is in reach tomorrow, which in some ways I'm pleasantly surprised to be able to say, in other ways I'm not, I never really considered plan B.
Had a good meal out this evening which was a welcome change after a week of cooking on one hob. Back to the real world proper tomorrow night.
