Pyrenean coast to coast

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The descent on the second riding day was amazing. Beware of the two tunnels they aren't lit and were very dark.

What did you think of your group leader?

Claude was well organised. We never got lost. The van was always well stocked with food and drink. Claude was very friendly and accommodating.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

It's worth taking 6 days worth of cycling kit as the days are long and it is a hassle finding the time to wash it. The alpine cols of the Tour de France is a much easier trip with much shorter days if you are contemplating which to do and you're not cycling fit. If you can do the seven peaks challenge in Australia you can do this trip, Mt Hotham and Baw Baw are harder than any of the climbs on this trip.
