Day 2 - France cycling trip: Veurne - Hazebrouck

Today we had a bit better luck with the weather : less wind, and a sunny morning. It's still a bit cold around here, but it should warm up soon!

This morning we were mostly on tiny country roads, which was quite enjoyable.   The afternoon, we took some departmental roads with light traffic.

We arrived in Hazebrouck much earlier than anticipated. This is good news, as my muscles are starting to ask me "wtf, why so much exercise all of a sudden? ", so tomorrow, I will be able to take my time ;-)

I am currently in a cafĂ©, which was hard to find, as most places are closed this easter Sunday.  I've just booked my hotel for tomorrow, which will be just outside Arras.

BoD will return back to reality and the working world tonight.  I think he'll spend easter Monday in bed. I will have to find some way to take pictures of myself now. :-)

Day 1 - France cycling trip

Today we went from Paris to Dunkirk by train, by bicycle to Bray-Dunes, then into Belgium to Veurne. We had a beautiful sunny sky, but the cold temperatures and wind were a challenge. As a result, I am quite exhausted, and this blog will be short with just a few pictures. :-)
