    It's a great trip indeed! The dog doesn't ride with us but stays in our "gite"when we're out. She doesn't mind at all, just sleeps until we're back.

    She did indeed - I'm most impressed an very proud of her. She's on a very steep learning curve! :)

    What an adventure, @Vulpes, on all levels! Please give Mrs. V a big hug from me and tell her "way to go"! :grinning::heart: Previous rides nearer to home will seem pedestrian to her when you are done with this trip and these roads. The weather looks like it was very cooperative, too. :sun: I'll bet Mrs. V was quite happy to sit down at dinner with a glass of wine this evening. ;):joy:

    Excellent write up and pictures Wim:grinning:
    A great picture of Mrs V with a smile we all recognise, knackered but so smug and content after a great days riding. Oh and ready for alcohol of course :joy:

    A shortish ride today on the "plateau de mille etangs (thousand lakes)". Good fun and nice weather, and an opportunity for the mrs' backside to recuperate! :laughing:

    That looks like a great loop, @Vulpes. And the scenery in your photos is divine. Another "way to go" for Mrs. V! It does seem that your plan to stay someplace lovely and do day rides is turning out to be a great idea!

    Edit: What was your mileage on the day out of curiosity?

    You hit the nail on the head, @Sandi T , a base for day rides is perfect at the minute. And Jefta thanks you for "the way to go", it's tiring for her to be sure, but she loves it!

    Only 60 miles today, but still challenging. Quite enough after yesterday. A 100 mile trip on the cards for tomorrow.

    That actually sounds perfect, @Vulpes. I remember when I first started riding and eventually doing multiple days of riding in a row. I also found it quite tiring--not only physically but also mentally. And the roads I began touring on weren't nearly as challenging as those you and Jefta are currently riding for the most part! It's smart to ride "just enough" to leave retain enthusiasm and eagerness for the next day. :):heart: Have fun tomorrow! :grinning:

    A good trip today, but sadly the tracks were too narrow to stop and take pictures... o_O

    We did stop for coffee...
