Cycling the last stage of our trip, both a happy and sad feeling, we are excited about seeing old friends and families again and the start of a new adventure, but we know we will miss the freedom of the bikes and our life outdoors.
We had a very relaxing time with my Mum, but it felt good to back on the bikes and the sunshine stayed with us!
A good view from the tent, the Chateau at Falaise.
The cobbled streets of Falaise.
Field after field of sunflowers.
Normandy is known for its wet weather, but on a sunny summers evening it is really idyllic.
The ferry home, and luckily a nice calm day!
England! Shame we didn’t bring the sunshine with us!
Russ and his Dad, who came to meet us and ride the last two days back to Bath with us and check we were on the correct side of the road!
We followed the sustrans cycle route for most of the way, which took us on some lovely back roads and cycle paths, however sometimes the signs would suddenly disappear which lead to bit of back tracking!
Not sure if this is the right way, but it’s very pretty!
Down to the ferry landing to get a little boat across the Humble, we just managed to get the three bikes on the tiny bright pink ferry that came across.
Even so close to home, we still rode through little villages and hamlets we never knew were here.
The back roads!!
Back in Somerset.
Home! Back at Russ’ parents house.
We have had such a great time and we can’t say a big enough thankyou to all the people who have made it such a good experience, all the hospitality and kindness we have been shown. Also the lovely company of the people we have ridden with. Hopefully this blog has shown something of a great journey, thanks to everyone who has followed us and shown interest in our travels.
