Cycling in the Dordogne: Day 1

Today is Thursday July 8th, sunny and hot (low-mid 30's C). After fixing Genevieve's overnight slow leak, we set out from Les Eyzies to the medieval abbey town of Cadouin (26km) for lunch, via morning tea at the walled hill top village Lemueil (16km) for lunch, then the final 18km down to the middle age fortified market town of Montpazier where we are staying in a charming hotel in a 19th century chateu. the hotel pool at the end of the day was very welcome. Tomorrow is forecast to be 39C, then the weather is supposed to cool down a bit. fortunately the Tour de France does not come near here.
