A very long cycle ride was on the cards today - a total of 40miles (64km) was to be achieved by end of play!

There are so few trains out of Auxerre. This meant that I had to get the 08h16 out, arriving in Clamecy at 09h12 - a little too early to start, but a better option than the next train.

Leaving the town, I headed for the Canal du Nivernais, stopping for lunch at the Ecluse de la Place, before eventually getting back into Auxerre at 17h00.

The story is in the photos ...
