Wow. 110 k on tough canal bank track. Heavy rain the night before made the track sticky. No easy k. No tarmac. Steamy also after heavy rain the night before. Map was incomplete near Nantes. Carol brilliant with the maps and taking good directions. Really nice campsite not far from Centre Ville.

73.40. Clock broken. 95% off road flat except for the 5% which was extremely hilly. On banks of Nantes Brest canal. No traffic .Some poor surfaces. Very mixed. Very nice and sheltered. Nice campsite in an old medieval town. There was a festival on with music that was very similar to Irish.
73.14 k 4hrs 43 mins ave 15.4 kph first part of day to Morlaix was on tarmac and quite fast. Very hilly out of Morlaix and then on to cycle way. Just like our green way. An old railway line. Great days cycling weather good and bike going well (so is the rider, ) fingers crossed.
