This Week's Cycling Adventure: The Pyrenees and Euskadi

My friend from Boston, Dave Andersen, arrives in Barcelona tomorrow. We're heading up to The Pyrenees and Basque Country for a litte bike ride or two.

Here is the loose plan:
  • Wednesday: Dave arrives and we drive to Saint-Lary-Soulan on the French side of the Pyrenees
  • Thursday: Horquette d'Ancizan, Col du Tourmalet, and Col d'Aspin (174km and 3200 meters)
  • Friday: Col des Ares, Port de Bales, and Col de Peyresourde (152km and ~3000 meters)
  • Saturday: likely Superbagnares, Puerto de Portillon, and Portet d'Aspet. 
  • Sunday: we'll drive to Euskadi (Basque Country) for several days of riding. Zumarraga will be our base, as its close to many of the Tour of The Basque Country routes and climbs. 
  • Tuesday through Friday: TBD. We have everything we need for Northern Spain (bikes, routes, Garmin, cash and credit cards), so we'll just take it day-by-day.
  • Saturday: Dave flies back to Boston. 
Stay posted for photos/videos.
