Day 6 and 7

Day 6

On paper a 95 mile day sounds pretty horrific, but it turns out we're absolute lads, so it was a piece of piss. The wind was behind us, the sunshine beaming down. Very few hills. It was a fantastic days cycling.

Max only got 2 punctures, but unfortunately no world record tyre changes happened. We arrived at the destination in Milly Sur 
Therin at 5:30 and were almost immediately handed some choice local beers on the hotels roof terrace. Champion.

We were handed very literally translated English menus at dinner which included dishes: 'mouthing' (Mause boush), 'laminated cheese' (cheese and puff pastry) and 'burnt cream' (creme brûlée). This caused some amusement.

Day 7

A short day with lots of drinking. Got a ferry from Dieppe to Newhaven. Now hungover. 1 day to go.
