Eventually we decided not to change the tube, but just inflate it every few hours. Actually it worked better than planned
We decided to skip a part of the Loire á Velo and take a train to La Baule, then cycle across the Atlantic ocean. A short check revealed we would have to take the train from Samur at 16:45. That meant a busy cycling day. We cycled all the way to Samur with the minimum breaks required for not exhausting ourselves. The ride was pleasant, with a plain route and pretty rural views.
Then we took the train to La Baloue. The ride was ~two hours long, with a place for the bicycle on the train itself. We arrived and checked in, in a hotel we will stay at for two consecutive days! That’s a nice change, meaning tomorrow we don’t have to worry about a place to stay, and might even ride without the panniers.
Tomorrow we will cycle along the Atlantic coast. We are looking forward to it 🙂
