Last day: still strong headwind going to Toulouse to catch the train after 2pm back to Bordeaux.
Very nice, easy ride along canals and seeing some sights. And it's always interesting to stay at various places from gites to chambre d'hôtes to simple hotels.
For me it was also an intense French course.
Bike Touring 5:44:00  79.6 km (4:19 / km) +190m 4:16 / km
From Agen to Montbéliard: long, tough day into headwind all day. Plus big problems w my hard saddle and hurts so much. Biting through but at end I was really exhausted and prob also had a hypo.
Some stops along the way looking at impressive abbey and cloitre in Moïssac, an "elevator" for boats which does not run anymore and others. Passing also Montech and in evening sun to our beautiful place in monbequi where large rooms, showers and a home cooked meal awaited us. Super!
Bike Touring 2:57:38  38.5 km (4:37 / km) +224m 4:29 / km
Day 3 starting out wo fog but nice temps and sunshine. Easy riding along the canal, today w lots of locks and watched several times how water was let down or was filled up to let boats pass.
At end passed 3 locks which ended up on a very long bridge which spanned over the Caronne underneath. Such a marvel to see ships pass on a bridge over a river below!
Pretty and surprisingly interesting city of Agen.
