Back to France for a taste of Le Tour de France

After a few days on the trails it was time to keep the tyres on the tarmac!

What a stunning journey from Ainsa to Bagneres de Luchon via the Bielsa- Aragnouet tunnel which is over 3kms long.

A 10 degree drop in temperature and driving through the clouds made a noticeable difference from the dry conditions of previous days.

The climb to the Col de Peyresourde had many cyclists following in the steps of the Tour de France which had passed through only a few days earlier.

Good luck to Geraint Thomas!

A relaxing drive down the mountain to Bagneres de Louchon through the hairpin bends made me glad I wasn’t cycling in the opposite direction!

Such exertion required some afternoon relaxation with a local tipple.

À votre santé
