Dijon to Briancon




No autoroutes today, the roads start out straight, becoming more curvy as we headed into the foothills, then the mountains…. Scott chose to take the motorway, though at least this meant he had reserved some pitches when we rocked up at the campsite...


Weather (as the case for the rest of the week) was hot (circa 30-34 degrees), so a well deserved few beers were consumed when we arrived at camp, plus some slight over-ordering of pizza, before... a first night under canvas - well deserved after a hard 10 hour day's ride.
