No rush today, plenty of time to get back to the North of the country. Need to plan on building a bike kit store like this one, modelled by my able assistant.
Chose 'curvy route' on the SatNat - they weren't kidding! Stayed off the main road through Aarberg, Biel & Sonceboz then across country to La Chaux des Frond, heavy farming country with interesting routes through the forests. We cross the border into France as we cross the old iron bridge over the river at Le Russey, superb roads through the fields to a stop at Malche, that was a route worth doing more than once, or even twice! Sooty enjoyed it even as a passenger, taking plenty of pictures en route.
Why does every town seem to have a cat out in the middle of a field on it's own?
Pont De Roide is ticked off next, before turning East towards Bonfol via Mathay, Herimencourt and other small towns and villages, crossing back into CH and our overnight stop.
We're greeted with wine beer and light snacks before our meal at the local town restaurant, good food, wine and company with Sooty, Joey Mimi, Yolanda & Jocci.
A tour of Jocci's 'Man Cave' is impressive but a drive of the 60 yr old tractor will have to wait.
A tiring day but most enjoyable with only a couple of wrong turns.
