We spent the night in Vichy, and we set out early to ride along the stage route through the feed station at St. Pourcain sur Sioule and then on to Chantelle. From there, Chris and I relied on our map and french skills to tour through the countryside and back to Vichy. A beautiful rolling ride by fields of sunflowers.
We returned to Vichy by 1pm, time to have a quick shower, meet up with Myrna and walk the 3 blocks to main street to await the tour’s passage.
Once the riders had gone through, we had time to spend pursuing other interests…shoes, chocolate and Vichy’s famous spas.
