    We’ve done the Plymouth-Santander albeit 20 years ago.

    Always remember there were lots of speed cameras as you went into Plymouth.

    This trip is now officially cancelled. The infection rate in Spain is mainly on the up still.:( So, we've decided it's unlikely that Boris and his merry men will change their travel advice. Still, we'll try again next year so if anyone fancies a trip to the Spanish Pyrenees next year, watch this space.:eyes:

    At least we got a full refund from Brittany Ferries, just a shame we had to fork out €52 for the vagrants hostel in Jaca! :joy::joy:

    Now that I've got that week in september off anyway, I've decided to go to France and ride a stretch of the Route Des Grand Alpes. Always wanted to do that.

    Nope, France is yellow for us, which means "stay alert".

    I will, mate. The wife is away with a friend that week, so rather than being home alone I thought I'd make this trip. I'll be on my own, riding my own pace.

    I suspect the French surrendered and collaberated as soon as they heard that Covid-19 was advancing. :eek::D.
    Yeah ok, a racist joke but I do love french bread, and wine, and toulouse sausage, and fois gras, and salade de geziers des canard, and french wine, and french pate, and French countryside, and french markets, and loads more too.
    Edit: and pain au raisin, croissants, pattiseries etc
