We apologize for the long silence. We made it to France no problem, but we’ve been struggling with establishing an internet connection. The French internet sim card we bought doesn’t work (although we try to resolve the issues in every big town we ride through), and whenever we find wifi, we need to use it for route planning and other necessary tasks.
In true Team Lumaca fashion, we are moving very slowly, around 25 km per day as we try to hit our stride. We are currently north of Beauvais, headed towards Amiens. We will try to sort out our internet again there, and we hope to have some real blog posts for you soon.
