Bonjour Paris! And... au revoir. Not a bad morning for a quick walkabout.
Dinner in Paris. Rather nice Coq au vin for me, something odd for her Sitting watching the world go by. Cheers!
La Chouffe is fantastic beer & rare to find it on tap. Cheers! #CentralParisPricesMadeThisMostExpensivePintEver!
Strolling streets of Saint-Germain. These food shops & people eating on the street helping us working up an appetite!
Free WiFi/charging desk at Tarbes train station. Well... free so long as you pedal. Great idea & saw kids using it!
Wondering Bagnères-de-Bigorre. Dappled light, traditional buildings, admiring autumn colours on the hillside above.
So people in UK/USA think Brexit/Trump stick it to the establishment? You do realise who put those choices before them, right? #NoRealChange
Moooooooo! Stuck in traffic again... doh!
Another random countryside walk. More curious cattle. Such a relaxing time
Lunch with friends after a damp walk. Advantage of chilly conditions: the restaurant is serving vin chaud. Cheers!
Short walk near Lac de Payolle. Well, it' can't be glorious sunshine all the time & besides, I quite like the mist
Short stroll to check out our new locale. Love how the inquisitive neighbours look up from their morning snack
Not just a pretty face? Access to oven + bit of spare time means fresh bread baked by my own fair hands. Yum!
Chatting to local about huge mushrooms he just picked from his field. He insisted we take them to try. So lucky! Yum!
Same road as last time, just bit slower today Must have been the clouds holding us back. Right girls?
With 2x Tourmalet & a club ride in the legs already this week time to relax & enjoy the view. Mission accomplished
31 October yet back atop the Tourmalet in summer riding kit! Twice in 5 days. With weather like this stupid not to
Approaching Luz-Saint-Sauveur on another Tourmalet tonne. Top tip: take the road to Sassis for this riverside view
Post ride essentials Now to sit in the afternoon sun and enjoy. Cheers!
Taking a 'nature break' while out riding. Had to snap these beautiful crocus flowers by the roadside. Love Autumn!
Another ride up the Tourmalet & autumn is really kicking in now. Saw some huge vultures while taking pics. Magical!
Spectacular autumn afternoon in the French Pyrenees, and always a pleasure visiting this spot. Happy Birthday Liz!
Media pushes fear & hate, which leads to conflict, leads to innocents suffering, which media use to sell copy. Ignore the mainstream media!
Wonderful & entertaining dinner out with some lovely new - & very generous, thankyou! - friends. Nom, nom, nom!
Chatting to the neighbours... Moooooooo!
Bagneres-de-Bigorre 'Twinning day' celebration. Great dinner & small display of classic cars - British, naturally!
Up early today. Things to do & all that! If you had to work in this area this would be your daily commute. Yerch!
Early flat aside what an awesome day out on the bike. Biggest ride of the year. In fact biggest ride since 2010!
Not far into today's epic forced to limp to LBS on this before procuring new tyre & tube. Lucky wasn't up a mountain!
Autumnal beer in the evening sun. Cheers!
Gourgue d'Asque, Little Amazon of the Pyrenees. The very definition of crystal clear mountain spring! Amazing place!
I often ride by this little church but today just couldn't help but stop to take a shot to share the view. Fabulous!
Out and about around lunchtime, pulled over by this shady stand of trees to eat. Love being enveloped in greenery
Lovely Autumn day and just wondering around in the Pyrenean foothills. Sunshine. Fresh air. Tranquillity. Perfect.
The media ignores daily third world tragedies as 'not newsworthy' yet daily shootings in USA are somehow of interest? #MainstreamMediaSucks
It's beer o'clock, but this is all I could find in the fridge. Oh well... cheers!
Hard hitting Aussie law makers outlaw mooning. Think wording accidentally makes builder's bum a crime too! Oops http://www.bbc.com/news/world-au...
Another glorious day up the Col d'Aspin. Say no more!
LOL! Now Windoze wants to install 350MB+ 'Retail Demo' & handwriting recognition on a PC I already bought that has no touch screen #Retards
Windoze: Updating, don't turn off, will be ages. Me: Bit late now given I've stuff to do & am using a laptop away from power! #WhyLinuxRules
First day of Autumn in the Pyrenees. Lovely misty view along the range on an evening wonder around the foothills.
Lazy supermarket priced these 2 off-cuts the same. Shame I chose the larger of the two obviously. Bargain plus!
Fallen chestnuts all over the place this time of year. Out walking today so no worries, but best avoided on the bike!
Countryside walkies. It's 'walkies' as neighbour's dog decided to tag along. She's smart, knows not to chase cows!
