Today's ride: seemingly endless rolling hills, little villages & a surprisingly busy Tolosa complete with brass band!


Today's ride: Coastal warm up before some brutal inland gradients. Full summer kit. Amazing mid-October conditions!


Crossing the little col of Alto de Mandubia on our way to the Basque coast. Big change from the scenery early today!


Too much fun rolling round countryside like this to stop for pics, but got to last descent of day & thought I should!


Midday stroll up a random hill. What a view! I can see the pub, erm, auberge from here too! Next stop lunch then! smile


Today's ride: Unbelievably took top 10 Strava spot up a HC climb! Beautiful day for it too. Smiling all the way! smile


Very pretty Basque village of Ainhoa, super close to Fr/Es border. I cycled here earlier & returned for closer look.


Today's ride: popped over into Spain, as you do wink It's all Basque Country though & such a beautiful region. Love it!


I rode here the day before & so beautiful drove Pratiwi up to see. Roads above the clouds always feel very special smile


Today's ride: little recovery spin in more rolling terrain... with 20% pinches thrown in because... Basque region! wink


Today's ride: Basque Epic from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port. Brutal gradients. Beautiful scenery. To Spanish border & back.


Today's ride: followed a chunk of La Vuelta course. Mostly closed & empty roads in stunning countryside. Awesome! smile


Beautiful rolling hills inland from San Sebastian. Aside from the main road to get here wonderful riding smile
