My favorite moment today was when we had to climb a relatively steep hill. We started behind a group that we’d seen before who were not friendly. The two women were on ebikes and I think the men were on regular mountain bikes. Shortly after starting, one of the men had to stop and get off. I thought, ‘oh, he’s not going to be happy about the four of us, heavily-laden, passing him by on this hill’ and oh, he was not. Especially when Laura started from a full stop on the hill and passed him.

The route back from the Cher river to the Loire was supposed to be very hilly and poor surface. The surface was completely fine and there was one big climb up followed by a long false flat, followed by a down. No biggie. We had more hills in between Amboise and Tours.

Amboise was a town that Brent and I had visited in 2015. It’s where Brent got his Loire a Velo skull cap. We went back to that store and got him a new one, got me some gloves and a replacement for my sunglasses that broke yesterday.
