France 2015 – Day 3

French Flag

Another late start for everyone after a late night, the Chateau is a great place for being sociable and sitting chatting until the early hours. Breakfast was served by our hosts, starting with cereal and coffee and finished off with croissants and fresh bread with lashings of butter and local jams.

The ride down the West coast to Granville on fantastic twisty coastal roads, we stopped for lunch after 3 hours of riding. The worst restaurant in the world certainly does not live up to its name but is a great marketing piece to bring in the hordes of hungry travellers and locals.

During the afternoon we took some scenic roads that meandered their way north back towards the Chateau. The riders were all pretty good and the day went as smooth as clockwork, the pace was good and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Of course, we’d bought that many oysters. They had to be finished off today and as everyone was aware of the culinary take on the French trip we also had a bottle of champagne to open too. Life doesn’t get much better than a great day’s riding finished off like this.
