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.
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.
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.
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
See Yeah later
