Half-season Clover MS-02 gloves discounted by our sponsor :

Roland Christophe Beloud
Because temperature is an important factor in this journey, I had to chose smaller and more breathable shoes, as well as the taller ones. A special thanks to Roland for participating by donating these brand new shoes, as well a puncture kit !
