If the only map you have of a area is a very large and heavy road map. Take a pic with your phone, and you can just zoom in to see your route. We stayed at Villeton on the canal side.
We are now down on the river Garonne and canal that runs from Borbeaux through to the Med. They have made a fantastic tarmac cycle path that runs its full length, and great aires with good views of the canal.
I visited a rural French car showroom and they some of there latest models out on the forecourt.
We had a funny day yesterday, we went for a great bike ride up the Lot and got back to St-Cirq about 2 so we decided to leave for the next aire, which we didn’t like nor the 2 after that. We ended up in a aire attached to a camp site that was closed. The 2 guys in the office were just leaving and didn’t seem interested, but they decided it was ok for us to stay and they turned the electric on for us. But best of all they gave me a free bottle of wine from the vineyard 100yds away, all in all pretty good for 8 euros.
