Ok, my newsletter business is not going too well. For a long time no update, actually no update since I started to really bike. Many excuses for that, but the biggest one is that usually when I arrive somewhere I'm super tired. I just try to get some food and then snooze off. Oftentimes before 21:00.

Today was a special day! For the first time I'm sleeping over at a warmshowers host! I'm a bit overwhelmed by the generosity of giving me access to his place, while he's not even there! And the ride was great, specially the first part. From Peymeiande to Grasse. Small street, up and down, up and down. Reminded me a bit of the paradise loop. It was a little detour but the ride was rather short that day. The rest was great as well, but the wind. If you're going down and it's hard, you feel a bit stupid. But again, it is what it is. And I do have a treat now when it’s windy. Tarte au citron meringuee

It was so windy, that it was almost hard to just stay on the bike. At one point I was crossing the Viaduc du Rayol. 159m long and 40m high. I'd say roughly 5m wide. In the middle there was so much wind that I actually thought I fall off. I already in my head made my peace being dead soon. But well, still alive. Wind gone today. Today was as well the first night I was camping after having had a great stay with my Warmshowers host.
