Today was a game of two halves. Royan to Rochefort was beautiful with everything from rugged coast to salt marches. Again all on lovely smooth tarmac cycleways. Towards Rochefort this changed to mud track then industrial landscape – this was no fun, especially as sections were on road with big lorries. We returned to cycle path after Rochefort but this range beside a motorway so was far from idyllic. Finally found a nice camp site just short of La Rochelle. Over 70 miles for the day not bad !
