Final ride in Normandy, France!

Yes, all good things must come to an end. Soon to be back to flat cycling in the Netherlands, but first my last ride.

I cycled from Isigny-Sur-Mer, through Grandcamp-Maisy along the beach, climbed out of that village past Pointe du Hoc, taking a big climb from the US Cemetery (needed my second gear to get up the last bit, was very steep), down along Omaha beach and climbing up past the museum to finish at Port-en-Bassin.

Total ride was 40 km and we ate a huge seafood dinner with the whole family (11 oyster starter, can you imagine?) before hanging the bike on the car to drive home.
