Auxerre to Vézelay: 53 km 
Vézelay to Cervon: 42 km
Cervon to Premery: 42 km

After our third day on the route we are managing to work out some of the kinks of jetlag and travel. The weather has been threatening and delivering some huge downpours, but we are mostly skirting the worst of it and loving each sunny break. 
Today was the unfortunate exception because it rained steadily – not quite a category 10 ( ie wet to the underpants), but definitely in the 7 or 8 range with soggy numb feet. The weather should be good on Saturday and last for awhile. Thank god!!!  I am roasty now at our chambres d’hotes in Premery.

I still swear by the App Pocket Earth for delivering to us some excellent cycling routes each day. There has been a combination of tiny paved country roads that curve up and down through sunflower fields and forests followed by long stretches on dedicated bike paths along the tow path of canal de Nivernaise. 
Last night we stayed with Mme et M. Mattieu in Cervon. They open their house to pilgrims on the route. It was a beautiful old Presbytery with wonderfully renovated in French country style. We were not expecting a meal but were surprised with a beautiful one.
