    ... group move on before we started the walk around. Some of the buildings are quite dilapidated but still occupied but those that are crumbling to bits have been abandoned.

    After we headed down the hill (where two years ago a HAT tourist in this same tour rode down too fast, missed a corner, hit a tree and died) we continued on our way mainly along cycle only paths or the ...

    ... the Loire, with boats in the canal traveling high above the non-navigable Loire. As we left the Briare canal, we entered the Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume wine areas. The two regions share opposite sides of the Loire, and both produce great wines, made with the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Sancerre is a hilltop town. That meant that our ride took us up and up to the top of hill, a hard climb at the end of 60 miles. However we were treated to a tasting of the two ...

    Similar start to the day with a bit of rain but also very windy. I had slept better though.

    We had 55kms to cover today! We stayed on the barge to experience two of the fourteen locks the barge is to go through today. These are more modern than the "seven locks" the town is named for.

    We hadn't gone far when Dave got a flat. Ari changed the tyre quickly and we were on our way. While we ...

    ... wee town that has a restaurant that this tour group uses. We had a four course meal and wine for €34 for the two of us. Dave had a good conversation with some of the locals on the street. They did not speak English.

    Then it was off to Chateau de la Bussiere which has parts dating back to the 12th century (1103 to be precise). The owners have set up a little self guided tour inside that includes the kitchens, salle ...
