Paris to Angoulême, Day 2, Orleans to Loches, 105 miles
Orleans. We were keen to get miles under our belt before stopping for our morning coffee and croissant, so had ridden past all the open cafes and patisseries on town. Once we were on the small roads and cycle paths along the Loire River we realised we had made a mistake, nowhere was open! We had to ride 70 km all the way to Blois for our first coffee!
