I'll tell you what, these rest days pass in a flash...all too soon we're up and at it again!
For no good reason I was able to throw a little effort into helping to drive the first bunch along today: of course there were a few other eejits willing to take a turn too and it really was a laugh to be blasting through the countryside and eating-up the miles. Not sure why we were giving it large, especially after yesterday's er, refuelling tactics but it did give me a chuckle at the first feed-stop when Chris said he was gonna contact WADA and see about getting us tested, hah-hah! To be fair, Andy did the biggest turn of the whole tour that morning: he also did the second and probably third too, but don't tell him, alright? Even the elite guys were impressed/pleased at being able to get their cigars'n'brandy out...at least until we started going up!
|Applying beans early-doors. Was a bit frantic at times!|
|The French and their roundabouts. 'Nuff said!|
|This lad can do it all: road, track...slowly. During the lunch-break.|
|First sunflower shot of the trip. Approx 900 more to follow, I would've guessed.|
|No idea where but we weren't hanging around anyway...|
|Nice to see you, to see you...nice capture of nonsense by Paul Davy, who shot us for a few days.|
|Tons of wildlife in The Pyrenees.|
|Perhaps you do have Right Of Way then...|
|At about 500 yards from the finish, the sun eventually broke through...yes!|
|This photo contains one proper cyclist. Joking, Gents...hah-hah!|
