Cycling in the south of France – Part Two

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 Two of this trip report, which includes cycling to the top of the Col du Tourmalet, can be found under the Cycling Tab above.
