We dock in Caen at 6.45am so its an early start to the day as we head south using only D and N class roads down the western coast of France. Fast flowing, smooth tarmac through forest and rolling hills flicking the bike from left to right, the day just fly's by.

Todays the day we get our first views of the Pyrenees but for the first 1.5 hrs we pop onto the motorway and head straight for Bordeaux and stop for a coffee.

After a relaxing night in Lourdes we leave the hotel refreshed and ready to ride east, keeping to the French side of the Pyrenees.

Day 5 - Foix to Carcassonne

speed 140 Miles

Today is a shorter day once again staying on the French side heading east towards the Mediterranean Coast, with the route full of super twisty roads, high passes and stunning views. Our hotel tonight is situated just 50 yards below the gates into the Medieval Town and has a swimming pool, so we aim to get there early afternoon to make the most of the day.

After a great evening in the Medieval old town its time to say goodbye to France as we head south over four Cols, cross into Spain and pick up the legendary N260 which winds its way through the valleys and over the passes of the high Pyrenees affording some spectacular views.

Today its 3.5 hrs of pure Pyrenees heaven. We head south to ride the north bank of Embalse de La Pena, before heading west and visiting Embalse de Yesa.
