Waiting time: 32min
This checkpoint was not for the faint of heart. We were carrying, as usually, 25kg backpacks. This time it was up the hill. For 3,5km.
It was a sunny day. We cheered when Matheus pulled over after half an hour. He was a good english speaker who had been an exchange student in Sweden. The topic was set for the ride as soon as he opened the side door of his van with a bike in the back. Bikes, extreme sports and of course traveling.
