Halfway through this morning's ride. Waiting for the ferry at Berowra Waters. Stinking hot. 36C when we finished!
Views from this morning's ride round Akuna Bay & West Head. Perfect day plus a PB on one of the shorter climbs
The bike assembly area at our gite in Anduze Now, time for a little shakedown ride in the spring sunshine
'Le Gardon de Mialet' (aka the river) from this morning's ride. Plenty of other scenery but only made a single stop.
Pratiwi out on a leisurely ride somewhere around Anduze. Another tranquil day in the South of France
Beautiful ride today. After a week here passed my 1st Col sign. Many more impressive ones to come I hope!
Somewhere on the D133 West of Anduze. Nice ride in either direction. Hope you can tell the road gently winds away
Today's cycling shot: Pratiwi overlooking the river just outside Mialet. She quite liked it here
This morning's ride to Col de Saint-Pierre. Beautiful smooth road. Tiny smash fest back home via Mialet felt good
Another beautiful ride up a cat 2 climb, then very technical descent and smash along this valley home. Perfect!
Second col on today's ride. Sunny, but nippy. In fact this is Plan B as was snowing on Plan A route! Still v. nice
The cycling I managed around Anduze. All these roads well maintained & many traffic free. Lots of hills. Love it!
View NE-ish from Col d'Ey, 2nd of 3 cols on the morning ride. The descent was awesome, and final one even more so!
As it was covered in cloud, only shots from top of Mt Ventoux are pretty poor Nice views half way down though
What a beautiful ride this morning with Pratiwi. Stopped for many pictures and a slice (or 2) of cake in Brantes
Part of this morning's ride passed from Suzette to Malaucène. Great views on this stretch & a great ride of course
Had an easy ride with the ladies today. Here's Pratiwi and Vicki and the view from just below Col de Propiac
A glorious day here to head back up Mt Ventoux. Could actually see something other than cloud at the top!
Views from this morning's jolly (but rather cold and windy would you believe?!) ride over a few cols.
Earlier today: View passing Montbrun-les-Bains & later water stop. The sun is shining again after few days of rain
Last Faucon ride done (sob!). Bike wash done. Time to hang on the drying tree before being packed for the trip ahead.
Routes cycled around Faucon. Ventoux is the grey-ish blob top/centre. Look at all those juicy cols & valleys too!
Some views from our first ride in the Pyrenean foothills this morning. Beautiful day, great roads, amazing sights
Views from this morning's ride to Hautacam & Col du Tramassel. Loving the Pyrenees
Laying in the back of the van after 92km/2770m epic over 4 giant climbs through the most beautiful scenery. Best European ride yet!
Tourmalet & Luz Ardiden from today's ride. Disclaimer: some from earlier in the week but looked the same today
Views from this morning: Col de Spandelles, Col du Soulor, Col d'Aubisque. Road between the last couple is amazing!
Beautiful ride up Col d'Aubisque this morning. Shame I then got rather lost! Oh well - once in 4 months isn't bad
Views from today's double assault on Col de la Madeleine. Only one small patch of rain which was welcome to cool off!
Sights from the bike ride today. Pretty cool. Can tell I've been in Paris eating cake the week so far though!
What a green and pleasant place this is in summer. One can only imagine the horrors it sees come each spring!
Pffft... they said it would be crowded & cold. Doesn't seem that bad at all! Now, riders should be through any...
Dutch priorities on the roads... correct! Sad not to have time for a spin here, but it is flat & was chilly!
Today's ride over to Austria & back. Definition of 'bike path' bit fuzzy here so some cyclocross action in there
Cycle loop by Hallstätter See. Dubious Austrian bike paths more like train station, elevated walkway or firetrail!
Cloudy ride today on the Grossglockner. 7° at the top where I arrived in short jersey sweating like a pig. Nice!
This morning's ride: random route from where we are staying in the Alps. Nothing famous but so beautiful. Love it!
From today's ride: End of the road above Verbier. Or rather where it becomes gravel a short way below Croix de Coeur.
Just got back from cycling round Lake Brienz. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!
After some very active days this morning's ride to Grosse Scheidegg was a struggle. Lucky there were views to enjoy!
Might have done a bit of pavé while sightseeing in Lindau this morning. Nice view from nearby Eichenberg too
Another ride into Lindau today, this time with Pratiwi. Very nice cycling through the orchards and vineyards.
Offenpass & Fluelapass. Love it but can't stay in Switzerland too long: so expensive! Lucky the memories are free!
OMG... just been handed this map! But only booked 4 nights here... & storms are forecast Hoping for some luck!
Ever used a snow drift as a bike rack? Finally got some blue skies but can assure you this ride was rather chilly!
Second (just) highest paved pass in the Alps! See the name under all those stickers? View down the other side is OK!
Am glad it snowed last couple of days, because we were here 3 days ago & this place doesn't look good in the nude!
The Umbrail Pass. Well, it would be rude not to visit the Swiss border & another pass as was only a 200m detour!
Few of the 36 official hairpins coming from Bormio. There are more below but they must have got bored with numbering!
Already at 1586m altitude but there's 36 hairpins left to do. Or you've done 72 if coming back down like I was!
