And everything takes its place, once again.CP4 in my pocket, it's an impromptu Asian dinner with several riders crossed towards Villemur that will put me back on my feet.I don't feel like gardening on the back roads and had planned plans B, C, D and E to reach the finish.Very well equipped with front and rear lights, reflective material and other safety features, it is in all awareness that I took the shortest route, by "the big road". I got involved precisely because it was night.I do not advise anyone to take such axes during the day, but I must admit that well equipped, at night it is very different: There is no one, we are visible from a great distance, the road users are facto very respectful of us and it is easy to supply, at least with water, all along the many cities that we cross.A sleep break around midnight to ensure the final ascent in good shape, it is when I wake up that I find with joy Clément, Xavier, Laurent and Frédéric with whom I will finish until the arrival between coffee breaks, fun, stories adventures and wild supplies in a supermarket.It was at the end of four days and 3 epic hours that I reached the sumptuous Lac d'Oredon and once again checked the “finisher” box of a Born to Ride teeming with twists and turns and uncertainties, but who once again moreover leaves the majority of pilots with an exhilarating sense of accomplishment.-The equipment used was identical to that taken for the Route du Diable, no worries, no punctures, nothing, everything was perfect:Machine Victoire Cycles (Gaby)Saddlebags Helmut EquipmentCafé du Cycliste clothingHigh Mobility Gear bivouac equipment
