Okay, tonight we went back to the Tex Mex place for dinner. We ate fajitas with a French margarita, a Spanish beer, Crème Brule and coffee to finish. That may sound like a strange combination to you but I will tell you that it worked pretty well for us. I know that you think we came to France to ride bikes and we have. All of this pre-ride preparation is a necessary part of the event and will help us in the difficult days ahead.On a less cheerful note we have heard of several people (including some friends) who have had crashed and injured themselves while riding here. Some will be unable to participate and are very sad. We ourselves are being extra careful and hope to avoid their fate.
