Day 9 Pyrenees & Euskadi: Col du Chioula

Just a brief post today. Unfortunately, our last day was a wash again. After Thursday's 210km ride, we planned a 100km route on the French side of the Pyrenees that would take us over 2 cols (Col du Chioula and Col du Pailheres) and a mountain finish at Ax-3 Domaines. The weather packed in as we descended Chioula and we were forced to turn back. It was a bummer, but we've had more than our fair share of awesome rides this week. I'll save Pailheres and Ax-3 for another trip. So, here a just a few pictures from today's ride.


  1. Chioula was a good climb. Back in Boston now and glowing from all the training and fun times. We sure go around!!

  2. Following your trip has been inspiring. Thanks for documenting it so well.
