Got up early and wombled to the house of pain for some bread, croissants and pain of chocolates for breakfast 🙂
I couldn’t face cycling up the fresh gravel surface dressing of the Col de Pailheres again, so I drove over it with wifey, following the route we took on the Raid Pyrenees four years ago…we HAD to stop at the Menhir de Counozouls 🙂
The scenery and houses changed from mid Pyrenees “French” style to Mediterranean, shallower pitched roofs with terracotta and yellows everywhere, the temperature also climbed!
When we arrived at Argeles-Sur-Mer, I went out for a bike ride, it ended up being MUCH shorter than intended, 38 degrees C was even to much for me! I ended up with an unquenchable thirst, and the warm water in the bottles just didn’t do it for me!
I ended up spending the afternoon in the pool!
