The Delta Hotel had a great buffet breakfast which I probably pigged out on 🙁 Just not used to having a choice.
Strava had decided to take me along roads rather than the more circuitous Atlantic cycleway. So not as pleasant riding with all the juggernauts, I worked out why I lost some of my average speed yesterday.The problem with taking the etrex on walkabout especially in supermarkets is that it still thinks I’m cycling 🙁 So today I stopped at a bricolage to get some cable ties to mount the Etrex onto the bike frame 🙂
Mimizan was a bit of an eye opener. I’ve never seen so many restaurants in such a small town. I guess in the summer this whole coast line is heaving given the number of camping sites & holiday places. I ended up at the Post cafe as most places were full. I think the omelette I chose really slowed me down in the afternoon as my poor stomach was digesting it.
Once again the head wind appeared so by the time I reached Leon I decided to call it a day, especially since booking.com was only showing campsites or hideously expensive places. The Hotel du Lac de Leon doesn’t demean itself by using booking.com, just resorting to a small roadside sign 🙂 Needless to say I think I’m the only guest tonight!
Strava says I did 67.7 miles and 745 feet of climbing.
The pictures will eventually end up on dropbox,
but the internet is as dated as the place.
The Fitbit Blaze had a bad day only recording 108mins of heart rate 🙁
Will update the post once I get on the internet!!

Interesting about your avg speed wonder if the same happens when I take mine off my bike …
Yep I’ve been practising increasing my average speed by super quick starts and fast stops 🙂 but then the tiredness creeps in..
