... was teaming with millions of kids so we chose beach and found a quiet spot under trees for some shade. It was already 30 degrees so we hunted down the sea for a cool off and once again the beaches were packed and not just for 500 meters but for 10 km. Its quite an education for us Kiwi's that are used to having a deserted beach whenever we want one. Not so many naked people today as you tip toe your ...
... Kms to the top when I came around a bend and found the gang waiting at the sign. At this point Gilles left us.

Our nominal route today included 6 "Cols"; admittedly, a couple of them were pretty close together. The BIG peaks were Col de Pailheires (2001m) and Col de Jau (1500+m), and they were NOT close together! It was a long day of cycling and climbing, punctuated ...
