Hi Ali
Could not agree more it was a crackin days riding in to Spain then France around 330 miles of twisty up and down mountain roads  happy57 tuono; tuono; tuono; tuono;

I would quite happily avoid Andorra just because of the speed cameras.  That little restaurant was worth the visit though excellent food and great welcome from our host  eat9 eat4


Problem with not knowing the Pyrenees we had to travel a bit to find the good stuff - now I reckon we know enough to maybe just have two centers  - but it is much further to ride than Picos

Sailing to Bilbao would save a few miles and a little time

V .... sounds like you all had a good time whatever route you took    happy119


i went  out to Santander and back via Bilbao..... not by good planning.... purely by choice of dates of return.... your right tho .... every bit helps.

Best tip i was given before i set off was to look up anything that the TDF or any route any other cycling race took..... basically anything that started Col d' "whatever"...

The Pyries has it all..... fast roads / twisty roads / stunning scenery - take your pick.


The 2 pics i have that really hit the spot for me were:


This one to show that i achieved my goal of coast to coast:






and this one to remind me why i wanted to go in the first place:






Not many places i would return to on a biking holl - big wide world - so much to see..... but i cant help feeling that there is so much more to see in the Pyrenees....

Best biking trip ive ever had.
