I met the friendly Rupert and Kate from the UK.

I cycled around 130 km on cycle lanes today. This bit of France has probably got the best cycle infrastructure of the trip so far.

I've kept the detail of what is ahead of me as a surprise so I wasn't expecting ginormous sand dunes popping up from the forest.
