Nice ride today although we did have some strong headwinds. Happily in the latter half of the ride, we had some variety of terrain and excellent roads.
D137 had a terrible climb that warranted at least two arrows rather than the one arrow shown on the map. Right after the climb as we pedaled along D613 toward the Etap, it started to rain just as it had the previous day right before reaching our destination.

During the day, we passed for a couple of short periods from Eure Department in the Haute-Normandie Region into the Orne Department in the Basse-Normandie Region.  Eventually, we exited the Eure Department and passed into the Calvados Department, which is in the Basse-Normandie Region.

Background:

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 2009 4.5 month route through parts of France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and then back to France.  Our beginning and ending point is near Chadurie (south of Angouleme) 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.  Pretty much the only unpaved sections were some bicycle paths in Germany and Austria. Sadly, that wasn't so great as Helen fell a number of times on the unpaved paths.  Fortunately, though, no serious injury.
