Today I rode first to St Bertrand castle where there was a medieval festival happening..I was a bit early so not much happening
then back the way I came, passing by where we're staying in Bertren
Bertren is just a very small village and this house is waaaay old. It's also very close to the church which has an interesting quirk in that it chimes the hours twice with a bit of a pause between. Apparently the resaon for this is that the first one was to alert the peasants in the fields that it was something o'clock and the second one was to let them count which o'clock it was!!! It doesn't double up overnight, for which we are truly grateful, but it's still very loud
Then I rode over to Louchon, where the TdF was just a few days ago and where I met up with Alex, who'd just ridden the Port de Bales (site of the famed "mechanical").
