Our intrepid three were the first off the boat upon landing in Saint Malo at 8.20am this morning and headed straight onto the open road. There was a later stop for water and flapjack after 20 miles, however the stop was cut short due to a chilly breeze. The roads were excellent and undulating and the three stopped later for a small lukewarm coffee and shortly after this encountered their first road closure. Remaining unphased by this they took a diversion which directed them onto the motorway which was closely followed by a McDonald's lunch break. Finally the three arrived in Pon Rean at 3pm to find that the hotel did not have a booking for them. However they managed to secure two rooms overlooking the river for 58 euros and are relaxing in the french sunshine awaiting tomorrow's journey.
