Avallon – Auxerre – Joigny
Tot alt 8803
First went out to see the close places to the camp. Amazing.
Before had my breakfast and a coffee. Had to wait for the tent to dry. Huge condensation. Slow morning so set off about 10.45.
Came back to the camp and then followed through with the trip. The first part to Auxerre didn’t disappoint. First some hills and then really good trip along the canal nearly to Auxerre. I thought that the Bourgogne canal would have been used as much as this one. Canal Nivernais. Loads of riverboat traffic. Few snack places along the canal. I had a burger. Really nice home made.
Auxerre really is all about football. Great infrastructure, new buildings. Old town itself quite abandoned. After a visit to the old part I decided to follow through to Joigny. Google Maps was showing an alternative route along the main one. There was none. So the first few km were a bit hairy but then it got more like a usual traffic.
Joigny again very nice town placed on the river Yonne. Enjoyed cycling along this one today before Auxerre.
Camping OK. French mainly. Few cyclists arrived just after 9 pm. French as well. Loads of mosquitoes.
