Nothing like first Tourmalet of the year to clear the effects of a weekend of slight excess wink Lovely day for it! grin

10:22

Earlier than I would normally go, but lovely ride this morning all the same. Luckily made correct clothing choice wink

10:04

Chilling out on a Sunday morning. Lovely little ride and beautiful conditions too. What's not to love? smile :)

10:02

Early ride to work up thirst pre-Paris–Roubaix. Accidentally better than planned... forgot the bidons! #Winning wink

16:18

Spectacular day on the bike. Loop over the Aspin with this amazing view of the Baronnies on the way home. Perfect! smile

12:47

Spectacular winter's day (yes - still winter!) on the Aspin. First ride in shorts for ages & it's up here! Toasty! grin

12:54

Another glorious day to be out on the bike. Spring is certainly on the way! smile

11:33

Out riding 'early' as classics season starts today. Thought it might be a hardship to ride early but... erm... no! wink

15:05

Post-ride refuel. Pratiwi was worried this was too much. LOL... Bless! wink tongue

16:55

No ride NYE so 2016 done! See cheesy infographic. Bonus fun fact: 343h is around 6% of my waking hours. #NotEnough wink

13:30

Does winter riding get any better than this? Unbelievable day playing on the Col d'Aspin!

12:10

Another glorious day... perfect for a spin in the sun with Pratiwi grin grin

16:32

Pic from one of the club guys today. Not at all the prettiest part of the ride, but I'm in this shot, so... share! wink

14:46

What's wrong with this picture? Happened out riding but random stranger gave us a lift home. People here are so nice!

13:38

Lovely day & Pratiwi said we should go cycling. Never let it be said I don't pander to her every wish! wink #ToughGig

12:50

Today's ride: 'Sunny Tourist Loop'. While none of these roads are famous it's 'tourism' because I stopped for pics smile

13:13

Snow on local 'hills' so autumnal tonne up to Rabastens-de-Bigorre & back. Beautiful roads. Amazing variety here grin

13:04

Caught out in the rain for the fist time all year & this is the result. Yerch! sad Lucky this doesn't happen often!

11:27

Same road as last time, just bit slower today wink Must have been the clouds holding us back. Right girls? wink grin tongue wink

15:29

With 2x Tourmalet & a club ride in the legs already this week time to relax & enjoy the view. Mission accomplished wink

16:04

31 October yet back atop the Tourmalet in summer riding kit! Twice in 5 days. With weather like this stupid not to wink

14:13

Approaching Luz-Saint-Sauveur on another Tourmalet tonne. Top tip: take the road to Sassis for this riverside view smile

15:28

Taking a 'nature break' while out riding. Had to snap these beautiful crocus flowers by the roadside. Love Autumn! smile

14:24

Another ride up the Tourmalet & autumn is really kicking in now. Saw some huge vultures while taking pics. Magical!

11:58

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!

15:29

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

14:45

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

15:09

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

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

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

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!

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

12:12

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

10:55

Beautiful day for a recovery ride in the vallée d'Aure. Full on 'recovery' too, my heart rate average was 88bpm grin wink

09:49

Erm... didn't I just change this? Oh well, lucky there's nothing strenuous planned for today wink #LotsOfMiles

13:38

Route des Lacs descent one of most technical I've done. To finish hit up Piau Engaly because, why not?! #EpicDay grin

13:21

Lac d'Aumar & Lac d'Aubert. Sometimes I'm asked why cycle so much? The answer: to be able to get to places like this!

12:28

Listed among best Pyrenees rides, Cap-de-Long is indeed up there. Literally! This lake is higher than the Tourmalet!

11:29

Today's ride: both sides of the Col du Portillion plus Superbagnères. Spectacular... & the descent is ballistic! grin

12:31

Today's ride: Port de la Bonaigua. Side trip to Pla de Beret had fantastic views of the Val d'Aran. Lovely place smile

11:23

Other side of Col de Puymorens & jaunt into Spain. Also passed a solar thermal power plant with huge mirrors. Cool!

12:32

Today's ride: 38km climb to highest paved road in Pyrenees. Plus Col de Puymorens. Plus Ax 3 Domaines. Fantastic! grin

12:07

Today's ride: Plateau de Beille. It's OK, but not that pretty. Valley road super busy too. Think I've been spoilt? wink

10:46

Today's ride: Col de Pailheres... with a few others to a warm up wink Beautiful & it's another one for horse lovers! smile

09:21

Hmmmmm... not... sure... think this tyre maybe needs replacing wink #LotsOfMiles wink grin

12:13

Today's ride: local loop then up the Col d'Aspin. Because, why not? Mooooooo! grin

15:54

Today's ride: Cloudy spin up the valley, but as usual, view from the Col d'Aspin fails to disappoint!
