Day 12 – Gray to Ornans

The day started well, was on the road by 8:30, and in Besancon by lunch. There are some lovely villages between Gray and Besancon – I could see myself living here one day! But the day worsened with roadworks, diversions up very steep hills, and rain. I sheltered in a warehouse in a village during the worst of it. I didn’t make Pontarlier, and instead stopped in Ornans. There I met a British couple Paul and Treena, cycling some of the mountain climbs of the tour de france. Special mention to them – they fed me a delicious dinner with wine! Thanks again!
