Day 15 – Poligny – Thoirette

This morning Danny felt a bit better and he wanted to try a part of the planned route. So we selected two parts of roughly 30 km and 25 km and Arno would stay very close to him so we could adjust the plan when needed.

Danny biked both selected parts while temperatures went up to 30 degrees.

Especially in the afternoon we went through beautiful surroundings and we “had” to stop many times to take pictures.

Tomorrow will be a rest day.

 

 

Danny in Claudon

Around 15:30 Danny arrived at Beauregard 6 in Claudine, France.  A fantastic accomodation with Dutch owners who were very welcoming.  Danny rode 85.3 km and was pushed mentally and physically.  The heat did not help and he was definitely exhausted by the time he arrived to his destination for the night. Once checked in, showered and sound asleep for a rest, Arno, his friend, who arrived yesterday and is now accompanying Danny for support, had to rush the bike to a bike shop to check the brakes, since according to Danny they did not work optimally.  The bike was fully serviced just before Danny left on this trip so we were not expecting to encounter problems any such problems.  All was taken care, the brakes fixed and the bike ready for Danny to continue his journey tomorrow.  Danny was too tired to convey his day to me and went to sleep after a lovely dinner prepared by the owner. What I do know, is that today was tough and the heat is really complicating things but Danny keeps fighting, he is determined and he does not allow anything to get in his way.  It is impressive to be part of this journey and to see this man go for his dream.  Day 12 completed.
