We were on the road before 08:30 again this morning - it was a little chilly but it wasn't long before we were climbing out of the Loue valley so that warmed us up. The ride towards Besancon was along a fairly ordinary French 'D' road with moderate levels of traffic until we were a few miles away when we left the beaten track for my devious quiet approach to the busy town.

The one way traffic is automatically controlled with your remote clicker that activates the locks. When we clicked for entry the red light turned green and the notice board said Go ...
... roads borded by crop fields and vineyards, I spent an hour or two traversing a forest where I became very aware of just how isolated I was..but thankfully without any real sense of personal vulnerability. I passed through Clairveaux just after 1pm, which validated my feeling that I had more hours of walking left in my tank. I tried to take a tour of the old Cistercian abbey in the village but I wasn't allowed to do it with my backpack. The person on the desk ...
