My good friend Christian just completed the Iberica Traversa in just over 9 days. An amazing achievement - 1713 km, 29257m vertical climbing - bivvying at night, through deserts and mountain ranges. Bravo Christian!!!

The story of my experience on the 2018 French Divide, a 2267 km (1408 miles) adventure across the rural interior of France on a bikepacking adventure with 126 other riders.
