Day 14 Carcans plage to Biscarrosse plage

Around 40 miles ( bike computer issues)

The day starts with a swim and some body surfing before riding through the forest. We are passing many other cyclists young and old because of the amazing surroundings and off road cycling. We make a stop at the Dune du Pilat, the largest sand dune in Europe. Its height is around 114meters and is moving around 4meters eastwards a year due to winds. It has swallowed trees, a road junction and even a hotel in the past. The climb up is tough, but the awesome view is well worth it! Along the way we befriend a fellow cycle tourer who we camp with and share dinner in the evening.
