The countdown to this year’s trip has begun!
Ade and I set off in the van on the 1st June to rendezvous with the rest of the lads at Cambo-les-Baines in the far south-west corner of France, near Biarritz and the border with Spain.
Our final destination is the Catalonian capital of Barcelona in Spain over 450 miles away.
We climb many of the famous cols of the Pyrenees including the Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aspin and Col de Pereysourde, head into Andorra and then into Spain proper and on to Barcelona (for a couple of nights!).
As usual I’ll be doing a daily blog once the trip gets started so look out for that…
