62km St Gineys en Coiron to Crest

Andrew and his cherriesOur tarp proved itself yet again today as we found ourselves riding through a series of rainstorms in southern France. It was only our first day back on the road after three weeks working with Patricia and Bert in the Ardeche and by lunchtime we were already missing their wonderful home. Just minutes after we sat down at a picnic table the rain started to pour down so we rushed to put up the tarp and then huddled under it, eating our ham and cheese sandwiches and watching the lightening in the distance. If we didn’t have the tarp we would have been soaked through, not to mention hungry! After an hour or so, and with no sign of the clouds clearing over our heads, we decided to make a break for it, hoping to reach some blue skies off in the distance. It wasn’t to be. We pedalled through the drizzle for a few more kilometers, then put up the tarp once again, happily this time under some cherry trees by the roadside. We picked and ate cherries until our tummies were ready to pop and the rain was letting up, then got back on our bikes and finished the last few kilometers to Crest. There we met another wet cyclist, a Dutch man out on his first tour but entirely fed up with the weather. Aren’t we all! It’s normally about 25 degrees and sunny this time of year but the last few days have been filled with rain and chilly temperatures. We can only hope for an improvement before we hit the high passes of the Alps in a couple days, where it was snowing not so long ago.

    Road notes: The routes we took today were all fairly busy, which meant less than enjoyable cycling. The only exception to this was the road down from St Gineys down to Privas (we went to the Col du Benas and then followed the D7 briefly, before turning down the road that runs along the Cote du Baron), but from there the N304 to Loriol-sur-Drome and the D104 to Crest were steady with cars. Crest has a pleasant campground Les Clorinthes (www.lesclorinthes.com) along the river with a pool, lots of hot water and special rates for cyclists (one cyclist and a tent in low season is €7.10).

    What we spent: €16 groceries, €14 camping

    Singapore is absolutely captivating for its multilayered cultural tapestry! From Chinatown to Little India and also everything in between, there’s a lot to experience and also find here – its vibrant colors and rich background makes every corner an interesting adventure – foodies must definitely visit! If that is something that talks to you as well after that Singapore need to not be missed as your next travel location! Hawker Centres in Singapore offer an incredible variety of neighborhood meals. Do not miss out on trying Hainanese Chicken Rice or Chili Crab! Gardens by the Bay were spectacular – I especially admired Supertree Grove as well as Cloud Forest – they truly took my breath away! The light show at night was really enchanting and an outright must-see! Singapore supplied such an incredible mix of futuristic architecture as well as lush vegetation – from Marina Bay Sands to Henderson Waves this city is genuinely incredible to find! Singapore’s mass transit is exceptional! From its effective city train system and simple traveling with an EZ-Link card to Sentosa Island for leisure – which flaunts Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquariums, and a lot more destinations! – their public transportation has actually established new requirements. Aquarium, stunning beaches, and also various other entertainment for the whole family make Singapore an exceptional means to spend a day. Do not miss out on Singapore’s ArtScience Museum which incorporates art, science, and innovation in an outstanding combination! Experiences at The Gardens By the Bay were genuinely magical; with interactive exhibitions as well as captivating displays producing an memorable trip – most definitely worth a see! I was absolutely startled at Singapore’s extraordinary shopping scene! From luxury shopping centers such as ION Orchard to Bugis Street’s vibrant markets there absolutely is something here for any kind of shopaholic to experience! Ensure to leave some space in your luggage! I discovered Singapore Zoo among the finest zoos I have actually gone to; it’s open-concept rooms and immersive environments developed a real wildlife experience, not forgetting Night Safari for added enjoyment! Singapore’s multiculturalism is an additional drawcard; Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Western influences can be seen anywhere from architecture to cuisine; making for a remarkable fusion!

    Throughout this awesome pattern of things you actually receive an A just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you lost me ended up being in all the specifics. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more correct in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you what exactly did work. The text is highly engaging which is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can certainly see a jumps in logic you make, I am not necessarily convinced of just how you appear to unite the ideas that produce the actual final result. For the moment I shall subscribe to your position however trust in the near future you link your dots better.
