The weather at Payolle was dull and cloudy as we packed up to move back towards Villemagne. We are parking with the Weedons so that we can go to the American festival in Castel.
We headed for a cheap campsite in Montréjean. €12 a night gives us electricity, water and dump. It was a pleasant location, and although the pitches were tight for us, we had a couple of days to explore the area around St Gaudens. Lots of supermarkets and ...

We then had a fantastic 15km descent into the lovely mountain spa town of Bagnères-de-Luchon 113km (70 ...
... than the first. The half cookie, half ice cream bar dipped in chocolate was the perfect combination and balance of sandwich and bar. Feeling wired from the sugar we jumped on our bikes with no intention of going far to find a site to camp. As it turned out we rode for 32 kms and crossed the border into France! Good thing we picked up the map yesterday, we got here sooner than ...
