Stage 1

Morges → Portimão


An incredible journey

On September 3rd at 10:35 AM, Louis Margot embarked on the first stage of his human-powered journey around the world from Morges, Switzerland.

Accompanied by three other cyclists, Louis continued his journey that took them through magnificent landscapes in France, Spain, and all the way to Portugal. They traveled on a mix of national roads, dirt paths, and even a few daring kilometers on the highway.

After 25 days and covering more than 2400 km, they arrived in Portimao, allowing Louis to complete this first leg of the adventure. Although the road was dotted with a few flat tires, the journey was a real success and there were no major problems.
