What a green and pleasant place this is in summer. One can only imagine the horrors it sees come each spring!
Sights from the bike ride today. Pretty cool. Can tell I've been in Paris eating cake the week so far though!
Views from today's double assault on Col de la Madeleine. Only one small patch of rain which was welcome to cool off!
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 this morning: Col de Spandelles, Col du Soulor, Col d'Aubisque. Road between the last couple is amazing!
Tourmalet & Luz Ardiden from today's ride. Disclaimer: some from earlier in the week but looked the same today
Laying in the back of the van after 92km/2770m epic over 4 giant climbs through the most beautiful scenery. Best European ride yet!
Views from this morning's ride to Hautacam & Col du Tramassel. Loving the Pyrenees
Some views from our first ride in the Pyrenean foothills this morning. Beautiful day, great roads, amazing sights
Routes cycled around Faucon. Ventoux is the grey-ish blob top/centre. Look at all those juicy cols & valleys too!
Last Faucon ride done (sob!). Bike wash done. Time to hang on the drying tree before being packed for the trip ahead.
Earlier today: View passing Montbrun-les-Bains & later water stop. The sun is shining again after few days of rain
Views from this morning's jolly (but rather cold and windy would you believe?!) ride over a few cols.
A glorious day here to head back up Mt Ventoux. Could actually see something other than cloud at the top!
Had an easy ride with the ladies today. Here's Pratiwi and Vicki and the view from just below Col de Propiac
Part of this morning's ride passed from Suzette to Malaucène. Great views on this stretch & a great ride of course
What a beautiful ride this morning with Pratiwi. Stopped for many pictures and a slice (or 2) of cake in Brantes
As it was covered in cloud, only shots from top of Mt Ventoux are pretty poor Nice views half way down though
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!
The cycling I managed around Anduze. All these roads well maintained & many traffic free. Lots of hills. Love it!
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
Another beautiful ride up a cat 2 climb, then very technical descent and smash along this valley home. Perfect!
This morning's ride to Col de Saint-Pierre. Beautiful smooth road. Tiny smash fest back home via Mialet felt good
Today's cycling shot: Pratiwi overlooking the river just outside Mialet. She quite liked it here
Somewhere on the D133 West of Anduze. Nice ride in either direction. Hope you can tell the road gently winds away
Beautiful ride today. After a week here passed my 1st Col sign. Many more impressive ones to come I hope!
Pratiwi out on a leisurely ride somewhere around Anduze. Another tranquil day in the South of France
Rob & Simon Gerrans, Aussie road race champion. Doing it tough after a crash but still time for fans @simongerrans
'Le Gardon de Mialet' (aka the river) from this morning's ride. Plenty of other scenery but only made a single stop.
The bike assembly area at our gite in Anduze Now, time for a little shakedown ride in the spring sunshine
Views from this morning's ride round Akuna Bay & West Head. Perfect day plus a PB on one of the shorter climbs
Halfway through this morning's ride. Waiting for the ferry at Berowra Waters. Stinking hot. 36C when we finished!
