From my tentplace to the France border I have to fight 75 km but first I have to pass Berga, and I plan a late breakfast here.

6 km and 200 meters altitude difference later I cycle into a very steep town. It is a small town, but at the moment it seems to be lively visited by tourists.

Berga is an small but cozy town, and steep!!

Lots of old houses

I found a cafe uptown which also has tables across the street after a boardwalk. I bring my food bag with me and pick up bread, yogurt, cheese and ham.

While eating my breakfast I check out the route to the French border and Puigcereda. 

Over 50 km and 600 meters altitude difference I have to cope with. Tough route.

Lots of beautiful village after the road upp o Puigcereda

After about 30 km cycling towards the franc border It became a stop after the road.

A landslide had caused an accident and the police stopped all traffic.

They urge everyone to take your other way but for me as a biker I have to take a bus . I not allowed to cycle through the tunnels, but the busride is free of charge.

Two hours later the bus let me of at the train station in Puigcereda.

A quick Coffe break and a new navigation check I on the bike again.

I did not know the play hockey up here, But a French guy said that Puigcereda ’s hockey team is in the Spanish league

Finding the route out of town to the Bourg-Madame, the first village in France was quite easy.

Then a long slope before I get into Saillagouse. A new Coffe break before next climbing up to the top, about 4 km.

In the slope down to the next valley I see a service place with green spots where I can pitch up my tent

a few km up from Saillagouse I found a nice place to camp at

See Yeah later
