Course de la Bretagne aux Pyrénées en essayant de faire la première partie (Bretagne - Bordeaux) en une seule traite. Le reste s'est fait plus délicatement, notamment la partie dans les Pyrénées où je me suis mis en tête de traverser les 8 cols (je m'en suis rajouté 1 parce que... je ne sais toujours pas pourquoi) en deux jours car j'avais un train pour retourner au boulot un jour plus tôt.Mission accomplie.

    First stage thought in One Shot with the idea of leaving from Pointe du Van and arriving in Bordeaux. Not sure I could do it but that was the goal.
    Very cool first day, at a good pace and punctuated with good bakery and social breaks. Dinner with some BTR participants crossed on the way.

    Third stage and fourth day. This is now that everything I have been dreaming of is becoming true.
    I had waited anxiously for the Pyrenees and it is now time to discover these wild mountains.

    6 a.m., I'm on my bike. After a short freak-out where I found out that my camera wouldn't turn out and then understood that the battery had simply completely lost its charge overnight, I go forward.
    I don't know if I'll be able to make it to the top, I don't know if the road will be open, I don't …
