Day 4: Fay-les-Étangs to Villennes-sur-Seine

Another short day, with a few climbs, and a glorious long descent down to the Siene at Triel: 2013 ride and 2014 ride. Again we had struggled to find somewhere to eat during the day, but this time we stopped early in the morning and bought baguettes at a boulangerie, so we had lunch with us.  At midday we came across an Italian man cycling with this son who were having the same problem. Later I advised him on where to find a supermarket but he had persuaded a shopkeeper who was doing summer repairs on his cafe to open for him. The shopkeeper in turn phoned his friend from the grocery store across the road and persuaded him to open to provide food for the Italians’ sandwiches. Having crossed the Seine for the first time, we stayed in a cheap but cheerful hotel (after using B&Bs up until today), and had another comfortable night.
