This is something I'm thinking about too, I know there are hypermarchés like Aldi, Lidl and Carrefour in the bigger towns along the way in PBP. Having peeped at their website I think I can find enough stuff at those places to supplement whatever bread and pasta I can buy at the controls/food stops. The trick will be getting to them while they are open! Most of them seem to be closed on Sunday and only open from 800-1730 during the weekdays. There's a carrefour right near the start in Rambouillet and an Aldi just east of the highway so I plan to stock up on Saturday when I'm there for the bike inspection.
