Day 6 : Back in the mountains

Today we made a good start. The sun was shining and in the village was a bakery, a store, and a post office all close together. We bought nice apricot croissants. There was a nice long descent. I only wished I had put my jacked on, because it was pretty cold. Later we sat down to eat on a bench. The weather seemed to take a turn for the worst, so we put on our water-resistant trousers and warm jackets. There was a flat section of about 40 km where we could put in some kilometers. During the afternoon it was hot. The entire day we were looking forward to a piece of road that our route description described as: 'ignore barriers and sign indicating dead end, very bad road for one kilometer'. When we finally arrived it turned out that the road had recently been asphalted into a perfect cycling path, that was a pity.

Throughout the day we approached the route we had cycled last year, in Til-Chatel we crossed it. Nearby we had dinner.
