We cycled into Nantes from the campground today, sorted out train tickets from Nantes to Rennes and from Rennes to Paris, established that our accommodation will work ok for bike storage, and then went out to see Les Machines de L’Isle. It’s a stinkin’ hot day - I’m glad we’re not riding in the afternoon sun.

Just as we returned to the hotel in the afternoon to check in, Brent got another flat, bringing us up to 11 between the four of us (eight just for Brent and me). Yeesh.

Today I say hooray for the Montagues. We’re staying in a hotel in Nantes that hasn’t got much storage for bikes but I told the skeptical young woman that Brent and I could fold our bikes and put them in our room. She was quite pleased and astonished.

I’m more than a little impressed that Brent’s McGyver pannier rack lasted the whole trip. We didn’t even know if it would last out the day when it broke and he had to figure out how to hold it together. Old bicycle chain and hose clamps for the win!
This evening we walked around and saw the Chateau, and the Catholic Church and ate some galetes (savory crepes). Mmmmmmm galettes...
