Let's start our engines!
A long first riding day with countless curves and beautiful scenery. Monserrat was one of the highlights and of course all the twisty mountain roads during the day. Our destination for tonight is an old monastery, just great!
The group did really well and everybody enjoyed the first day very much.
After that really long day yesterday I thought some riders want to rest today, but not this group. We started at 8 for a full and spectacular ride to San Sebastian and back. Thousands of curves, beautiful scenery and hardly any traffic. Motorcycle heaven! The whole group performed great. Congratulation! We just made it before it started raining, lucky. The extended bootbeer was fun!
On our first part in Spain we met some pilgrims doing the Camino. The mountains in the afternoon got higher and higher and we crossed the border to France to do some Tour de France passes. Unfortunately one was closed and we had to turn arround. Another wonderful day.
Today was the day of the passes, 10 in a row!
We started with the famous Tour de France Pass Col du Tourmalet and had a nice coffee stop in Arreau. 9 minor passes were following and all of them were great riding fun. We arrived early and had time for bootbeer and music. Another wonderful day in motorcycle paradise, the Pyrenees.
