Early flat aside what an awesome day out on the bike. Biggest ride of the year. In fact biggest ride since 2010! grin

09:54

Not far into today's epic forced to limp to LBS on this before procuring new tyre & tube. Lucky wasn't up a mountain!

18:57

Autumnal beer in the evening sun. Cheers! smile grin

11:02

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!

10:08

Deutsche Post couldn't find a nice electric van, so built one itself. Rolling out all over Europe! http://www.streetscooter.eu/

Out and about around lunchtime, pulled over by this shady stand of trees to eat. Love being enveloped in greenery smile

12:10

Lovely Autumn day and just wondering around in the Pyrenean foothills. Sunshine. Fresh air. Tranquillity. Perfect.

16:56

The media ignores daily third world tragedies as 'not newsworthy' yet daily shootings in USA are somehow of interest? #MainstreamMediaSucks

15:56

It's beer o'clock, but this is all I could find in the fridge. Oh well... cheers! wink grin

08:13

Hard hitting Aussie law makers outlaw mooning. Think wording accidentally makes builder's bum a crime too! Oops wink http://www.bbc.com/news/world-au...

@daniellloyd1 I don't know what this #freelloydy bollocks (boom-tish) is about, but something already looks a bit too fcuking free to me!

14:45

Another glorious day up the Col d'Aspin. Say no more! smile smile smile

22:53

LOL! Now Windoze wants to install 350MB+ 'Retail Demo' & handwriting recognition on a PC I already bought that has no touch screen #Retards

22:33

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

18:38

First day of Autumn in the Pyrenees. Lovely misty view along the range on an evening wonder around the foothills.

17:30

Lazy supermarket priced these 2 off-cuts the same. Shame wink I chose the larger of the two obviously. Bargain plus! wink

11:57

Fallen chestnuts all over the place this time of year. Out walking today so no worries, but best avoided on the bike!

11:17

Countryside walkies. It's 'walkies' as neighbour's dog decided to tag along. She's smart, knows not to chase cows! smile

08:02

Will & Kate promoting Canada. Don't forget to tell the environmental disaster story that is the Alberta Oil Sands sad http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us...

15:09

First day of Autumn loop around the Tourmalet. Perfect riding conditions but it is getting a little nippy up top.

22:05

Dear Ms May: safe, wealthy nations have a duty to spread these traits globally, NOT selfishly slam doors on those less fortunate! #Disgusted

08:38

Just cut my nails in, literally, 1 minute. The InterWeb tells me some people will pay $50,000 for a manicure. So I just earned $3m/hour? wink

13:56

Gathering for a birthday celebration in Toulouse. Lots of Indonesian food & french gateaux. Oh yes! Nom, nom, nom! tongue

07:58

It might not officially be Autumn for a few days yet, but it's certainly coming. Beautiful colours this morning.

07:57

First snow of the season fell on the Pic du Midi couple days back & more yesterday by the looks. #ViewFromOurDoorstep

12:57

Another difficult day in Southern France wink Hanging with friends while they force food & drink on us. Thanks guys! grin

11:28

Eating figs straight off the tree. Yum! And... erm... nom, nom, nom, nom! tongue

09:35

Visiting the market hall in Tarbes. So... here's the obligatory 'piles of bread & cheese' pictures! wink

09:52

Bit of exploration & finding the limit of what's marked as a road. Still got those MTB skills, even on 25mm tyres! wink

07:52

Dear Australia, you do know a nature reserve should be, um, reserved for nature? Not some lobbyist's dirty business! https://www.theguardian.com/busi...

23:49

Humans have been on the planet over 100,000 years, but destroyed 10% of it's wilderness in the past 20. #Doomed cry http://www.treehugger.com/conser...

21:00

A full fridge. And yes, light inside is blue so our whole place looks funky if no others on when you open the door smile

12:56

Quick lunch stop. Tried Parisienne Bruschetta to discover it's cheese on toast with ham! wink Very nice though. Nom! tongue

10:59

Spotted in local motorhome dealer: 'Crossover' model of our snail. Think it takes bit more than fat tyres though! tongue

13:59

Glass of rosé with lunch. In a beer glass. Because that's just how classy I am wink Cheers! grin

12:05

After yesterday some recovery needed so gentle spin to the Hourquette. If you call 1000m+ climb up here recovery wink

12:45

Top of Hautacam: Blue skies & views for miles! Well, it's the Col de Tramassel actually, but you knew that, right? wink

19:18

Evening walk between the cornfields. Val d'Adour, French Pyrenees.

19:13

Spotted this deer on a dusk walk. He stood looking at us before slowly walking into the corn. Magical. #DodgyPhonePic

09:29

Breakfast time! Rest day otherwise there'd be eggs in there too. Love fresh bread & croissant in the morning. Yum! tongue

14:16

Pot of 'industrial' desert with a few added Brambles picked straight from our hedge. Nom, nom! tongue #SimplePleasures

12:31

If you see the headline, "Pound Jumps..." remember it's all relative. GBP is still down over 24% against AUD in the last year! #Forex

14:31

While it might be a little cloudy down the valley, another glorious day up the Col d'Aspin. Simply love it up here!

10:53

Little trip to market today. We didn't pick up much, but how good does this slab of pork look? grin Nom, nom, nom tongue

14:40

Walls of snow in Spring, walls of corn in Summer. Just love the variety of the Northern seasons. Although - ask me again mid-winter! wink

12:39

Ahem, well, this is slightly embarrassing... finally gave in & joined the fat bike fad! Look at the size of that! wink

15:44

Wondering around in the woods near Payolle. Still pretty warm in the sun so it's nice to be in this shade.
