Tour de Normandie: steps 5 & 6

Day 5-stage from Ouistreham to Vierville-sur-Mer
This day allows to test the proper maintenance of the repair. Between the villages with high streets, the roads are straight, the asphalt smooth, the sun loads full, my bike gives all satisfaction, we go… At Arromanches, we stop at the memorial, tourists flocking around our bikes. With a lot of enthusiasm, Daniele gives everyone the explanations they want, while I visit the site and take pictures. Later, we visit the American Cemetery. Emotions.


At the end of the day, we arrive at the end of the beach of Ohama Beach, at the last campsite. After having made the point, the repair is not stabilized, we have to abandon the next steps of the Cotentin and adapt our itinerary to avoid the chaotic roads and to favour the asphalt well smooth.

Day 6-stage from Vierville-sur-Mer to Domfront-en-Poiraie
It’s the beginning of the return. We leave early but the heat catches up quickly. We lose our way several times, which allows us to discover a splendid abbey, charming villages but leads us on chaotic roads.


We arrive at Domfront and we install at the municipal campsite of shady and economical: €6 for 2 people!
