- An early start and we zoomed the 4.5kms to the car rental place in no time. No traffic at 8am Sat in the centre of the city. Yippee!
- Collected car. Loaded bikes and off we drove to Brive-Le-Gaillard
- Trip was 4.5hrs, mostly on autoroutes (freeways ) including a lunch stop at a reasonable services centre).
- Did the last bit of the trip on the small back roads which were lovely but better on a bike than a car
- Dropped the car off and rode to station to catch train.
- We (Tom) did our good deed for the day and helped an asian tourist find her way to an address in the town (4min walk from station). She had no English and limited French so he walked her there
- Meanwhile I got the train tickets for us and the bikes.
- We then settled into the station buffet and had a drink or two before the train came.
- Cahors is a really lovely town. Lots of character with many tiny narrow lanes impassable to cars.
- Walked around part of old town after dinner and discovered the intriguing ball bearing driven clock ( I’d forgotten about this from last time I was in Cahors )
- Tom discovers a new shower mechanism
