Preparation

Around the Rhune

Balade d’entraînement pour faire un peu de pré-montagne et quelques cols.
Temps incertain, la météo annonce des orages violents à partir de 17h avec des rafales à 95km/h ! Mais Cédric et aussi Dominique se proposent de mettre le vélo dans la voiture en cas de besoin et de me ramener à Biarritz ! Avoir de l’assistance dans ce cas ça aide !

Photos and dongle GPS

Photos and GPS trackings keeping autonomy

First Day, Toulouse-Revel
Until the Seuil de Naurouze, no problem (...)

A drive in Montagne Noire

– Return by Les Cammazes
The climb was a little rough on the way. The start was 227m and a little before Arfons it rises to 773m. About 550m climb! But it’s okay.
