V.happy Pratiwi after glass or 2 of lunchtime wine, with great food of course, La Seu d'Urgell. Lucky I'm driving wink


Lunch above clearing clouds @ Refuge Orisson. Great steak & Gateau Basque - of course - nom! tongue Fantastic experience!


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


Today's ride: Above the clouds in glorious sunshine. Col d'Aspin. Sublime.


Wake up, check weather: Fog. But outside seems sunny. Actually get up & look out other window. Ah - here it comes! wink


Sunset after a brief storm this evening. Hope this means more sunshine tomorrow!


Hmmmmmmm... call me crazy, but think there might be storm coming... wink


Goldern Hour. If only there was somewhere close we knew we could pass by to snap the crazy clouds this evening wink


Afternoon stroll: Col de Beyrede to ridge above. Just made snow line. Spectacular & one of the best short walks here!


Lovely Autumn day and just wondering around in the Pyrenean foothills. Sunshine. Fresh air. Tranquillity. Perfect.


Big week of riding ends with loop to next valley & home over this little climb. Stayed dry despite the clouds. Phew!


Welcome to Lyon! This is why we usually avoid cities, but GPS says it's best way North. Doh! cry Cool clouds though.


View down to Arreau as we drive the Col d'Aspin. The clouds rolled over as we climbed so was a bit nippy up the top!


Nice view of the city & 'burbs after takeoff. See you around Sydney! And some crazy top end storm a few hours later.


Interesting stuff parked next to East Midlands Airport. Ah, it's an Aeropark apparently. Plus obligatory clouds pic.


Last of the cloud is almost burnt off by 2pm. Lucky, because it's a great view down on Laruns from here!


Awoke to a misty morning. Took a drive over Col de Marie-Blanque anyhow. Wow! Above the clouds is a different world!


Bit changeable out so just relaxing 'at home'. Clouds add something to the ever changing view from the lounge window.


The day before I rode up here in beautiful sunshine. Now look at it. The descent & climb side of Passo di Valcava.


Passed this mad storm front on the way home. Threw in some 'extreme' processing too. We managed to stay dry, BTW! grin


Cloudy ride today on the Grossglockner. 7° at the top where I arrived in short jersey sweating like a pig. Nice! grin
