Cycling in the south of France – Part One

On Friday, 9th September, 2011 I left England with my brother Ken and a friend, John, for a cycling trip in the south of France. Basing ourselves at the little village of Bagneres de Bigorre, in the Pyrenees quite close to the border with Spain, we spent a week cycling some of the mountain passes made famous by the Tour de France.

Part One of this trip report, which includes a short visit to Lourdes, can be found under the Cycling Tab above.
