Day 5 Niort to Jonzac

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

I am glad I have finished today, not because it was a particually difficult or hilly ride but for some reason the whole ride was really hard work.  I had  a very sore arse and left knee pain and right hip pain, nothing to make me stop or anything just very annnoying.  I also felt low in energy and had little reserves, which I suppose is to be expected after over 600km of riding now.

I rode through some beautiful fields with sunflowers then corn then vines, there were the odd patches of rain and Cognac was pretty.

After 100km I just was desperate to get to the finish but feel fine now I have had a shower. Only 3 days more cycling to go!

Thanks for the support
