Paul and Ingrid's Pyrenean Traverse - Take 2

August - September 2013

Over 10 days, the French "Raid Pyrenean Touriste" starts on the Atlantic coast and traverses 26 cols, many made famous by the Tour de France, to arrive at the Mediterranean, paralleling the Spanish border. The ride is almost all on the French side of the Pyrénées, with excellent mountain views. The route is often in remote countryside, passing through quaint, small villages. This was a challenging, beautiful, sometimes grueling ride, involving daily ascents of 1500m - 2500m; it climbed many classic ‘hors categorie' cols including Col d'Aubisque, Col du Tourmalet, and Port de Pailhères.

There will be pictures and stories. Come share our French journey.

Track Cycling Trips to the Forest City Velodrome - Feb 24-26 & March 24-26 

I am planning two weekend trips to Forest City Velodrome (FCV) in London Ontario. One in February and one in March. All ages, from 13 to adult to, well, "even older than me" are welcome. New track riders are welcome, but all participants should have strong basic cycling skills, and be able to maintain a speed of at least 35KPH for 10 minutes.
