Serre de Rapheu is a smal long-shaped summit covered with forests. This mountain owns a splendid singletrack on the ridge offering stunning views over the valley and the massif of Mont Valier.
Unfortunately my father couldn't take part in this ride due to a small injury he did the day before on Cap de Bouirex which caused pain in his wrist. The only small consolation to that is that he offered me to take his new bike, a carbon Titus he purchased the year before. A splendid frame that reminded me a lot the feeling on the Spec Epic 26" I tried some time ago from my friend Albert.
