And not rush to Nantes to chase the tour. Maybe I would stay an extra day at the farm, in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, just to enjoy the scenery, do a short local ride over the beautiful green foothills, some laundry and have a nice meal on the patio.
I miss this wonderful home in the Pyrenees. The place we call Le Sagué.
