Pyrenees Extreme!

Sunday, October 10, 2021 | Pablo Piferrer | Europe

Day 1: Castelldefels - Os de Balaguer

After a rainy afternoon, we are off to a cool but sunny start. The road takes us past Montserrat but due to the low clouds in the morning, not something that we can enjoy as a view unfortunately, that said, it's not like the region doesn't have amazong virws everywhere!

A warm-up day of 370 kms to our monsatery hotel for the night.

Finishing touches to luggage and what have you. Need it all to be ready!
Almost ready, quick pic and off we go!
Quick selfie for the road
View from the Cardona Parador is breathtaking
A well deserved beer before dinner
Pretty cool, uh?!

Day 2: Os de Balaguer - Pamplona

Our longest day of the tour, but packed with awesome roads and mountain passes. Local wildlife, food and sights. But we're here for the sandpaper gripping asphalt. 

Ready for a mix of roads?
Cool bridge, "puente de las Colladas". Roman style and standing like the first day.
Gotta refuel!
Wasn't meant to be a stop, but the guide had a phone drop mishap....

Day 3: Pamplona

A rest day doesn't mean rest, it means we stay in one hotel, so the ride is optional and given that it is "short and curvey" (short as the crow flies) we all went out for a lubch by the beach.

I thought I could handle 2 full omelettes..... I was wrong....
Quick pit stop while admiring the views

Day 4: Pamplona - Luz Saint-Sauveur

Off we ride towards France, leaving behind grippy sandpaper like asphalt for just as grippy brand new roads? Beautiful surprise as we ride into the land of wine and cheese, to find how much development in infrastructures has been done over this past year. Let's go!

Well, gotta organise coffee in France!
The views from the hotel, not too shabby
Hotel... living room bar

Day 5: Luz Saint-Sauveur- Tarascon sur Ariège

New decoration for some of the signs in the French Pyrenees
Trusting, but not too much
