Another cold and damp morning complete with threatening clouds. The forecast is only for light drizzle so I hope to finish my short ride today relatively unscathed.
After packing up the campsite I only have a few kilometers to ride to get into Moissac where warm croissants and a double espresso await me. I savor my coffee to give the day a chance to warm up a bit.
This last section to my destination, while short, brings some climbing as I make my way through Quercy. My knees are feeling the strain of lugging all the weight up the hills. If I haven't ridden with a full load for a while they always complain a bit.
I arrive just in time for lunch... starting with a huge block of foie gras. It's just as delicious as I remembered it. Time to restore those lost calories from the last few days, and maybe start working on a reserve for the trip home.
