2014: Central Europe

March 26, 2014: Rians - Trets 31km (2:09) 585km

At this point I decided to go further south in warmer region so was my hope, direction to Toulon, avoiding Marseille and reaching Trets.

March 27, 2014: Trets - Aubagne - Circuit du Castallet 44km (2:56) 629km

A bit hilly riding that day, and finally reached a very nice place yet noisy due the closeness to a busy street.

March 28, 2014: Circuit de Castallet - Toulon - Cuers - Besse sur Issole 84km (5:28) 713km

The next morning some surprise, some ice on the cover . . . what followed a nice descent to 0m elevation at Toulon, a city which isn't that easy to ride through - it's surely the 3rd or 4th time I rode through it, and every time I struggled with finding good bicycle paths to traverse it. Then tried to make way to north-west but it was difficult to find places to camp, so finally over 80km until a suitable showed up.

March 29, 2014: Besse sur Issole - Carces 28km (2:06) 741km

Following the river Issole a bit, and then going slightly north with some small lakes, at one I washed some cloths, beautiful place, but it was so windy that I had to move on until Carces - slow day.

March 30, 2014: Carces - Fox Amphoux 16km (1:32) 757km

Some brief trip today, with a short but steep ascending, at the top with a nice place in a dry forest - time to charge my smartphone (all-in-one photocamera, GPS, navigation) again with my solar panel.

March 31, 2014: Fox Amphoux - Barjols - St. Maximin - Rians 56km (3:27) 813km

Decided to go to Rians again, the same place as a week before and plan the next part of the tour.

April 01-06, 2014: Rians 0km (-) 813km

I ended up a week staying at this place, as one day I felt tired and required some more sleep then some rainy and cooler days which made me stay - also had some pain in the hip (Ichias nerve) which immobilizd me for 1-2 days: the lesser I moved the more pain I had, until I ran out of water and had to get up again - the first few minutes were painful until I rode again and the pain vanished. Also the cooler nights weren't good for this condition - so the next days whenever I felt some slight pain I kept moving or keeping the hip warm; the pain did not came back anymore.

April 06, 2014

April 07, 2014: Rians - Manosque - Forqualquier 66km (3:43) 879km

After a week I was eager to ride again, was feeling strong again, sufficient sleep and warmer weather again, trying out a new route at the Haut Provence region.

April 08, 2014: Forcalquier - Cerest 36km (2:36) 915km

The morning was a bit cool and rainy, but the afternoon turned out sunny and took the time to watch some underwear.
