Autumnal beer in the evening sun. Cheers! smile grin


Gourgue d'Asque, Little Amazon of the Pyrenees. The very definition of crystal clear mountain spring! Amazing place!


A few years old, but shocking & shameful: "Obesity a bigger health crisis globally than hunger" #EatYourselfToDeath http://edition.cnn.com/2012/12/1...


I often ride by this little church but today just couldn't help but stop to take a shot to share the view. Fabulous!


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


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! wink grin


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!


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


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 wink I chose the larger of the two obviously. Bargain plus! wink


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! smile


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...


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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...


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...


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Another wonderful summer's day up near the Hourquette d'Ancizan. Always nice to stop & say hello to the locals.


Pratiwi hasn't been up this road before but quite likes the view. Maybe she should ride a bike more? wink #FamousClimb


Post-recovery, recovery wink Cheers from Saint-Lary-Soulan! grin
