Pyrenees, September 2018
In the Pyrenees again. And again a nice tour with Marcellus and Extreme-Tours.
End of September promises nice and to too chilly weather. And the Pyrenees promise empty roads, breathtaking views and good Spanish and French food.
We ride 1430 miles (2300 km) in six days and climb 29 miles (47 km).
Riders are Marcellus, Achim, me (Tom), Marcus and Beat.
We start our tour after two days of travelling there. The day is for the Mediterranean Sea with a great coastal road, palm trees and warm weather.
Today we go to France, Andorra and then back to Spain. The day starts chilly and then it gets quite cold on the first pass. Then we find the sun.
Today we follow the traces of Tour de France onto the higher passes of the Pyrenees.
Today we stay in Spain. It gets warmer and we find many twisty roads.
We ride more southern on empty roads and enjoy scenery.
The last day. We return to our starting point in France at the Mediterranean Sea. But during the day we will go from Spain to Andorra, to France, to Spain and to France again.
The Catalonia conflict is visible everywhere. Yellow ribbons everywhere signal the request for independence from Spain
The Pyrenees are quite far away. I needed two days to get there and two days back
I have compiled all the more than 1700 pictures in chronological order into a little video
Achim recorded quite a lot of videos during the tour. I have cut the footage.
Find here all videos in chronological order.
