17-Aug-2018 -- This is the 3rd out of 5 reports reaching confluence points in France along the 49th latitude during my 3-day bicycle trip. The story starts at 49°N 1°W and continues from 49°N 0°EW.
Tailwinds blew me further east while cycling. So in the evening before sunset I found myself in the village Oissel le Noble, which is 300 m from this confluence.
On a sandy but ridable track between agricultural fields I could approach the confluence up to a distance of 40 m. The fields had already been harvested such that it was no issue to walk over the stubble field to the exact confluence location. The village La Bretonnière which is 500 m north-east of the point can be seen when standing on the confluence point.
15 km after reaching this confluence, I found a hotel in the town Évreux. Now I had already achieved my goal of visiting 3 confluence points in one day. I had originally planned 3 days for that. What should I do the other 2 days? I had already visited the next confluence to the east, north, west and south. Well, I would consult my pillow to solve this problem.
