Day 8 Molló to Barcelona

MUCHAS GRACIAS senores por una semana excelente con muchas curvas y condiciones del camino perfecto y momentas especiales. Hasta el ano proximo.

Already the last day ... no one what's to think about that. We took a great group picture in Mollo and started again in two group back to Barcelona. Olot, Sanat Pau, Madremanya and the great coastal road GI 682 from Sant Feliu to Lloret de Mar was on our schedule for today.

Day 7 Carcassonne to Molló

Today we left Carcassonne after a great breakfast in direction to Lagrasse and the beautifull Gorges de Galamus. That gorges is a system of bizarrely shaped canyons. That day turned out a little bit different as anyone expected. Our final destination today was Mollo in France again, which we reached after Col d'Ares a great pass with awesome sweepers.

Day 6 Luz-Saint-Saveur to Carcassonne

What a great and wonderfull day, perfect weather, cool in the morning and sunshine. Today was the day with 8 perfect passes. We startet with Col de Tourmalet which was invented to Tour de France in 1910.

Day 5 from San Sebastián to Luz-Saint-Saveur

We left San Sebastian at the Atlantic Ocean directly into the mountains and crossed the border to France. St. Jean Pied de Port - a small little town - well known by the pilgrams, because at that point the hardest section over the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela is starting here. Col de Aubisque in the afternoon was our highlight, but unfortenately in the rain.

Coffee stop in the small village Erratzu

Restday in San Sebastián

Restday in San Sebastián - everybody took a rest today and visited the old little town of San Sebastian with it's two beautifull city beaches, Monte Igeldo and Isla de St. Clara. San Sebastián is also called Rio de Janero of the Atlantic coast because of it's Christus statue. By chance we all met in one of the famous Pintxos Bars where we had a delicious lunch.

Surfers paradise
Isla de St. Clara
... muy rico los Pintxos

Third day from Bielsa to San Sebastian Donostia

We started our day with riding back the small Valle de Pineta in direction to Ainsa. We went right into Valle de Vio a very narrow and tiny road in an amazing gorge - not a really good idea to take the van there, but it's one way.... so it was easy

Buen dia!!!
First photo stop of the day: the old village of Buerba perched on a golden hill
.... big van in the tiny gorge
... old little bridge over the river in the gorge
In front of the Ciutadela of Jaca, regrettably closed today...
Picturesque village for lunch... Ochagavia
San Sebastian is getting closer... only three more mountains and then... vamos a la playa!!

Second day from Peramola to Bielsa

Another beautiful great cool morning..... Benasque National Park was on our day today. We started already with the first pass 20 km after the hotel - Coll de Nargó. Nearly no traffic and perfect road condition makes riding in the Pyrenees a dream of every fast rider. We had a lot of fun and endless never ending curves. Coll de Espina was in the afternoon and our final destination was the Parador of Bielsa at the dead end of Valle de Pineta and submontane of Monte Perdido.

First riding day from Barcelona to Peramola

What a great morning, after a thunderstrom during the night, the weather was perfect to start our Pyrenees extreme tour. Good it was Sunday morning and nearly no traffic in Barcelona to get out of the city easily. We took the "diagonal" directly into the mountains to get the first curves on our trip to Molins de Rei. Our first stop was the Abbey Santa Maria de Montserrat - Catalonia's holiest location. Monks form the Benedictine order still live there and it's famous for their black Madonna. Nice curvy roads with great asphalt guided us over Coll de Jou, Coll de Nargó and Coll de Boixols to Peramola.

... all lined up perfectly... everybody was keen to start

Welcome evening in Barcelona

What a great start in our hotel Front Maritim directly at the ocean front in Barcelona. Our group from Monterrey just arrived when we were unloading our two trailers, which we travelled from Mieming/Austria to Barcelona.
