I left Négrèville, had luck at Granville and followed to route of the bay to Mont St Michele. The journey was a pleasure compared to yesterday, although as I approached the Mont it was such a beautiful sight I kept looking at it for too long whilst riding along a very windey road.

The temperature started at 31 degrees and plummeted to just 13 by the time we hit the Andorran border!!
