... in the Beast for the last stop, L'Estartit, another town they haled as delightful. We booked into the most expensive campground yet but didn't care as we were hot and just needed to stop. We had a swim in the pool and then hopped on our bikes to go and explore the town. It had a brilliant backdrop with a huge soaring hill behind it and out to sea three big rocks set the scene.

It was a gorgeous day, and we set off as a group of five, Peter, who is feeling much better, Lori, Steve, Gilles and I. The major climb took us to the Col de Palomere at 1036 m. Thankfully it was not a steep climb - I would guess between 5 and 7%, which is a good thing because I could barely manage that. I had done my math and was convinced that I had another ...
