From Brioude to Puy-en-Velay

This morning the trailer is again "on its feet". Today the stage is short but the weather announces a thunderstorm for the end of the morning. My Italian sidekick, Daniele, is proposing to trace the shortest to our destination. The few thinnings allow to scrounge a few watts but it is very little for the long climb that awaits us. Throughout the morning a stormy sky gathers and darkens in our backs. The threat forces us to redouble our efforts to cross the pass. A very small stop for a cereal bar and we are very fast on the Puy, more than 25 km! We arrive at the Matourt, our rendezvous point, just ten minutes before a torrential rain falls on the city. With other suntripeurs, we shelter in a restaurant.  In the shelter, we share our stories by tasting a delicious aligot, and we have compassionate thoughts for those who are still on the road!
