@al_humphreys - look what you did to me:
Zip off trousers by North Face, merino T-shirt by Howies, stout shoes by Shimano. Buff, bicycle and thousand-yard stare model's own.

Scott and I did 450 miles & over 45,000ft of climbing in six days, riding along the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Med. A #GrandAdventure #CycleTouring, that cost less than £1,000 for the two of us.

Wait! There's one more, and it's a mile less high than the last one!

Last one. Next: 12km downhill at 10%, and then across the plain to the sea.

35 miles of progressively steeper climbing in the temperature of an oven to get here. Brutal. Just brutal.
