Although the sky was mostly overcast, this was another very good ride on perfect country roads.
Since we were quite close to our starting point, the farm at Le Faure in Chadurie, we found ourselves by chance stopping for lunch at Montignac-Le-Coq, the same place we’d stopped for lunch on the first day of our ride two months ago.
My wife and I have been doing self-supported tours in Western Europe (a majority in France) since 1993. This series of rides covers our 2005 2 month route through parts of France. Our beginning and ending point is near Chadurie (south of Angoulême) where our friends have a farm with Gites and Chambres d'Hotes.
We rode our Dawes touring bicycles purchased in 1993 heavily loaded with 700Cx32 tires. All of our riding was on paved roads, mostly with very little traffic.
