FORGES-LES-EAUX

The cycle path was harder this time, going along roads and with large hills. We stopped at a nice picnic area to eat our lunch, and then we played a werewolf game. We carried on cycling, and, after lots of hard work, eventually reached the campsite.

LE COUDRAY

We stopped here, and decided to do a bit more cycling so we didn't have to do it tomorrow. We then went to bed, and in the morning we had a big game of football, adults vs kids. (The kids won 4-1). Shortly after that, we got back on our bikes for another day of cycling.

GOURNAY-EN-BRAY, SAINT GERMER DE FLY

It was a hard cycle today, with lots of hard uphill cycling - and fun downhills! We saw lots of churches, and heard lots of church bells. Along the way, we bought some baguettes and then had a game of tig, which ended in an argument and a rap battle! As we cycled past a shop called Le Fly Kebabs, we planned a better rap that we sang outside the campsite.

DOUDEAUVILLE

The campsite was quite far away from the cycle path, but it was a great campsite. Although it wasn't very large, there was a hammock, a small swimming pool, a shop, and an area to play football. There were some friendly French kids that we played with, and there was a huge dog that was actually quite friendly. We slept to the sound of crickets and woke to the sound of cockerels, birds and church bells. This was most people's favourite campsite so far.

NEUFCHATEL-EN-BRAY

We were supposed to stop further back, but we pressed on and did 18 miles. It was hard to get used to cycling on the right hand side, but we got used to it. We arrived at Neufchatel-en-Bray and waited for the cars to get back. Once they came, we pitched our tents, played football, and played with nerf guns.
