The last two days we made good progress. We cycled 94 km on Tuesday from Épinal to Nancy. We assumed that this stage was mostly completely flat. So the 150 m climb at the end took us completely by surprise. Otherwise the stage was great- mostly bike trails and very small roads.
Today the situation was a bit different. On the 88 km stage from Nancy to Metz we travelled a lot on busy roads. Some of us had flat tires. Yet the weather was still great and all made it into Metz in good health.
