... almost glad to be back in the car for another 2 hours driving!
The scenery became notably flatter with harvest fields as we approached the Champagne region. At one point we both spotted our first ever twister! OK so there weren’t cows or cars flying around but we could see the dust from the harvest being sucked up into god knows where – very cool and a first for us ...
... Elliott particularly enjoyed it! Our thirst quenched we moved on to a wander around the cathedral. Quite spectacular, Oliver not normally one for architecture was particularly keen with the camera. A short hop then took us to Troyes for the night......pizza and an early night......! Too tired to do Troyes any justice, we must leave it for another ...

Firstly we met an English couple pedalling towards us. It is always interesting to hear what routes other cyclo-tourists are taking and to compare stories. Their adventure, like ours started in Brittany, then through the Loire and up the Nivernais Canal and across to the Burgundy Canal. Unlike us, they had planned and booked accommodation for each day before leaving home, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Les Epingliers Saint-Andre-les-Vergers
I chose this hotel for the secure parking. The car park is in full view of the road which made me a bit nervous about leaving my motorcycle, although I did manage to tuck it away out of sight.

The rooms are a bit small but cozy.
