|Ride to Jargeau
|Isle aux Moulins, Jargeau
We broke camp in lovely weather, and then right at go-time the rain started. Thankfully our campground had a cafe that opened at 8:00 for first coffee so we tried to wait it out. After two hours of trying to wait it out, Brent, Laura, Ann and I decided to get while the getting was good (lighter rain) while Geoff and Lynn waited longer.
We had lunch and took an extended break in Chateauneuf before continuing on to Jargeau. We saw Geoff and Lynn’s bikes there, but not them. They arrived at the campground about 30min later than us.
The rain broke around 11:30am and so far the nice weather is holding. Hopefully we can enjoy this for a while.
|Before dinner we walked into Jargeau to have a look around. It was a neat little town and we wandered into the only open store - ‘Velo Val de Loire’. They don’t sell front racks but we learned that Zefal is made in Jargeau. One of their products is a flat-prevention tire liner. Ann bought a set and I wish I did too. Hopefully I get another opportunity.
Feeling hardcore after riding in the rain all morning
