Although the distance to ride today is short I start early to try to get through before the rain that is forecasted in the afternoon. It works well at the beginning with just a few drops on the descent of the first passes but when I reach the 1000m of the Ronceveaux pass (Ibañeta) it really rains and we are in the clouds.
On the descent it’s cold which justifies staying covered as much as possible, I stop to eat in one of the last villages in Spain. As the lady speaks very good French I ask her if we are in Spain or France ! In Spain again 🙂
Arrived in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port around 2.30 pm, I can get warm and take a nap !
