today we cycled 75km, from Cambrai (FR) to Tournai (BE); managed to work our way thru a roads-closed-but-not-quite cycle race along the way
after 4 failed attempts at finding open bike shop this morning, finally got a new chain on my bike this afternoon thanks to Intersport Noyon
broken bike chain + all repair shops closed because of le 15 août = we're staying in hotel, sleeping in real bed for the 1st time in 16 days
nieuwsgierige buurjongetjes op camping verbazen met het feit dat we helemaal hierheen gefietst zijn (met stukje trein). "pas de voiture?!!"
we planned to go to Calais yesterday, but no more room in train for our bikes. now staying in Paris, not a bad place to spend my birthday :)
