  A very high friction road surface leaving Aulus les Bains sapped the last of our energy, so we stopped to watch the sunset.

  The next morning was cold (again), travelling West-East and stopping on the ascent (the west side) of a Col would mean that we'd never wake to beautiful sunshine :(

  By this stage in a tour, you are fit enough to converse on the uphills, maintain a regular breathing pattern and admire the scenary!

  Last minute checks at the summit of Col d'Agnes before a descent. Ensuring that everything loose is tied down, brakes function, and protective eyewear and helmet is put on.

  A glorious sight - another Pyreneen descent!

Hmmm. what was that about the helmet? Don't do as I did!

We continued towards the Etang de Lers, Vicdessos and over the Port de Lers.
