Some views from our first ride in the Pyrenean foothills this morning. Beautiful day, great roads, amazing sights smile


Routes cycled around Faucon. Ventoux is the grey-ish blob top/centre. Look at all those juicy cols & valleys too! grin


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 smile


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! smile


Had an easy ride with the ladies today. Here's Pratiwi and Vicki and the view from just below Col de Propiac smile


Part of this morning's ride passed from Suzette to Malaucène. Great views on this stretch & a great ride of course smile


What a beautiful ride this morning with Pratiwi. Stopped for many pictures and a slice (or 2) of cake in Brantes smile


As it was covered in cloud, only shots from top of Mt Ventoux are pretty poor sad Nice views half way down though smile


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! grin


The cycling I managed around Anduze. All these roads well maintained & many traffic free. Lots of hills. Love it! smile


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 smile


Another beautiful ride up a cat 2 climb, then very technical descent and smash along this valley home. Perfect! smile


This morning's ride to Col de Saint-Pierre. Beautiful smooth road. Tiny smash fest back home via Mialet felt good smile


Today's cycling shot: Pratiwi overlooking the river just outside Mialet. She quite liked it here smile


Somewhere on the D133 West of Anduze. Nice ride in either direction. Hope you can tell the road gently winds away smile


Beautiful ride today. After a week here passed my 1st Col sign. Many more impressive ones to come I hope! smile


Pratiwi out on a leisurely ride somewhere around Anduze. Another tranquil day in the South of France smile


Rob & Simon Gerrans, Aussie road race champion. Doing it tough after a crash but still time for fans smile @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 wink Now, time for a little shakedown ride in the spring sunshine smile


Views from this morning's ride round Akuna Bay & West Head. Perfect day plus a PB on one of the shorter climbs smile


Halfway through this morning's ride. Waiting for the ferry at Berowra Waters. Stinking hot. 36C when we finished!
