    Very interested Vulpes, thanks.

    I must have traversed a bit of your route some years ago. Had a 3 night stop over in Grenoble to " explore " a bit of the alps. You've rekindled my interest to go back there. :)

    A pleasure, @Johnjo . It's definitely worth going - I intend to go back and do it again, but this time take the more easterly route via the Col de Bonette. I missed quite a few Cols there.

    Brilliant Wim! Absolutely stunning! Brings back memories of northern Spain and the Pyrenees I done with Dougie last year. Some of those passes definitely trump the ones we were on. One for the to do list :grinning:

    Just found this thread @Vulpes after seeing your dirty bike on What you been doing...thread.
    What a tonic on a wet miserable Saturday in December! Especially this year when rides have been limited. I recognise those passes from watching the Tour de France on the telly but the views look so much better with a Speedy in the picture.
    Thanks for posting the photos and videos Vulpes and making us all jealous, looks like you had a great time.

    It was brilliant @Dawsy ... inspite of being on my own. Thoroughly recommended, and thanks for your kind words!

    looked great Wim :cool: even although the weather was a bit iffy at times. i really must try some of that fancy sea food as everyone who eats it raves about it (I'd have to blindfold myself first as it looks disgusting! :worried::scream:)

    It was a brilliant trip, Dougie. Some bad wather, but fine most of the time.
    As for seafood - give it a go, well worth trying!
