Day 6 – From Vimoutiers to L’Aigle, 46km – 236km total

Today was a totally different day. Quite cool in the morning, but became warmer in the afternoon. Weather was fair, with a Westerly wind (which did help as we were going due East to L’Aigle). The day began with a 200 meter climb from Vimoutiers. We began cycling a bit late today (11am) and Dianna already had her morning nap. She was therefore awake and signing while we were at it.

Thereafter it was undulating towards L’Aigle. We had lunch at the end of the climbs. Typical small French village with a brassarie where one man was the chef, the waiter and everything else. It took him about an hour to cook Chef’s salad 😉 Dianna had her dinner and fell a sleep as we left the village. As we approached L’Aigle, undulations became longer and a bit steeper. We were doing close to 50km/hr on long descents.

L’Aigle is a nice little town. It’s Sunday however, and everything but a Chicken fast food takeaway is closed. We got some (terrible) chicken wings there and retired to the hotel for Euro 2012 Final.
