A warm up for an 8 month jaunt around the world - the small matter of crossing the Pyrenees on a bike. Hard work - hats off to Lance. Bordeaux to Biaritz was a bit dull - some good surf though. The mountains were spectacular, some pretty serious altitude training for Kili .... Col de Tourmalet at 2115m was the most painful - Ah but the downhill at 46mph was pretty fun. The Med coast was chaotically busy and getting to Barcelona was something of a relief. Next stop Africa, Tanzania and Kilimanjaro !!
