At the start of day 8 of our bikepacking trip we decided on where to go next... The answer was, the Vosges Mountains. We rode through Basel (Switzerland) and quickly after crossed the border into France. After a week of the Black Forest, this was something completely different. The hot, burning, dried-up French countryside. It was a beautiful day, but not nearly as beautiful as the shelter (refuge) we slept in that night, at the side of the Vosges Mountains near Masevaux. Definitely check out the komoot Highlight on that one! At the refuge we bumped into a group of French locals, celebrating the 50th birthday of one of them. The French being the French, of course they shared their wine, food and fire with us. Such a great evening!
