If all else fails get your head down on your arms at a table in an eatery.  Then there are bus shelters, benches at picnic spots, railway stations, etc... anywhere horizontal that you won't get rained on.
I've dusted off all those old bottles and set them up straight

They all have some sleeping
but some facilities are better than others.

Carhaix had camp beds in a sports hall,
Tinteniac had bedrooms with about 4 beds per room.

I’m not sure I’ve had a better night’s sleep since Carhaix 2019 - I slept so well that night!
I’m sure it won’t happen again though.

Prices have ogne up
Carhaix is ready to welcome you
To welcome all these cyclists, from almost 70 countries, the Acap has planned 250 sleepovers in the high school gym. To sleep in, count €14 including a disposable sleeping bag and the necessary shower.
For the catering of nearly 400 volunteers and cyclists, the association table for 2,500 meals, served in the refectory and prepared in the high school canteen. "There will even be vegan food," say Jeannick Le Corre and Elisabeth Leborgne, organizers of the reception in Carhaix. The Acap would like to remind that even Carhaisians and cyclists' companions can dine there for €2.50 to €8 depending on meals.

whether it's 9 euro for a bed and a shower or 14 euro, does not even factor into the overall cost of the entire expedition.

entry, ferry, hotel, accommodation, food for a week, insurance, new kit.
