|– Discovery of the “Vendômois”||– A bit of road|
For this ride, change of course ! We leave the Loire on one side to find the Loir in the Vendômois, and also our recurrent guest of a day, William. We start our route by leaving from Saint-Ouen and rejoin the Loir by making first a loop around the pond of Saint-Ouen. Then we take a path alongside the Loir, lined with fishing grounds. This is the opportunity for us to stop by one of those mysterious grounds …
But when leaving again, this is the tragedy. Another flat tyre for the Chatmouettes ! This time, it’s for Stoumik. The funny part is that we have nothing to fix the tyre this time. Too optimistic, maybe ?
Well, never mind, we continue a bit anyway for a few kilometres until the entrance of the town of Areines, as the tyre is not completely flat. But it doesn’t last and we have to admit that we won’t go farther by bike for today, at least, all the Chatmouettes together.
Stoumik, handicaped by his flat rear tyre has no other choice than sheltering next to a wash house while Shazen and William come to “rescue” him by car, and end up this first bicycle ride of the Chatmouettes in Vendômois.
