7 days 710km 13,500m

16th Sept - 24th Sept 2023

So that's Day 1 of this year's ride done and dusted. Weather was absolutely gorgeous and we did go at quite a pace….. 17.4mph average (about 27kmh in new money I think) which isn't too shaby for 2,500ft of climbing! We got several admiring glances and comments on our Pedal The Pyrenes kit on the road up to St Jean Pied de Port and also as we sat having a well earned beer.

We had a picnic lunch in the back garden of the Hotel Mendy in St Jean le Vieux in the shade of the trees as we ponderedf the challenge of the Marie-Blanque on Monday……..

I'll let you know how that went on my next post. Bye for now…..
