#7Countries7Passes Day 13 - Into The Corbieres

This morning, I awoke from my final wild camp of the tour; a spot high on the hillside, overlooking the Corbieres. Just 75 kilometres to ride today, to take me to a warm shower, hot lunch, and the great company of my good friends the Farmers.

I made one last Jetboil coffee, ate a baguette stuffed with honey roasted peanuts (basically peanut butter with honey, right?!); then packed down camp and got on the road.

I met Gus 15 kilometres out from their house, and we went for coffee at the local café. After six solid days on the road without a friendly face, it was extra special to see his.

We then rode back over the hill, and I enjoyed a long warm shower, and a hot meal. So good to see Gus and Sarah again.

This afternoon was spent prepping kit for tomorrow's final assault. 175 kilometres with 5,000 metres ascent: it will take me into the Pyrenees, over two major mountain passes, to the finish line in Andorra.

What an incredible journey this has been.
