    Short-ish ride today, about 80 miles. Weather cheered up no end, so we were happy bunnies. A littlle stop on the way.

    After that it was on to our hotel, where Steve checked us in and we [email protected]@ered off to Andorra for some lunch.
    Coming back we parked our bikes in the courtyard.

    This morning I said my goodbyes to Steve with whom I had a great week, and set off to France.
    I got out of Andorra over the mountains rather than the tunnel. Sadly no piccies as the pass was covered in clouds.
    Further down the scenery was quite different from the last week.
    20220916_120043.jpg lots of little country roads until I got to Carcassonne.
    20220916_132454.jpg
    From there it was swift N - roads to St. Jean de Minervois, where a mate has a B&B. My digs are quite luxureous, and the views stunning.

    Had a great meal, and an excellent time catching up over a couple of drams.

    Yep had to say goodbye to Wim (@Vulpes) on Friday morning. As he has said a brilliant week of riding, eating and drinking. It cannot be beaten.
    I decided I would not ride on Friday, instead I chilled out for the day. I took the bike to a jet wash as it was filthy and gave it a clean, got fuel in preparation for my trip back to Jaca today (Saturday).

    On Friday evening I was invited to dinner by two Swiss bikers who Wim and I had met the previous day. There English was far better than my Swiss, so we got a long just fine. Fed and water we headed back to the hotel for a farewell drink.

    Today (Saturday) I headed for Jaca once again. The day started quite cold having me wish I had put my lining my in my jacket. Anyway it warmed up my mid morning adding to another wonderful ride in and around the foothills of the Pyrenees.
    I eventually got to my hotel, checked in and headed into town for some food.

    After an excellent nights sleep I had a quiet coffee outside. Fantastic morning view.
    20220917_073939.jpg
    Had breakfast with and said goodbye to my mate, and off I went.

    Next stop was the Millau Viaduct, which I'd wanted to see. Very impressive.
    20220917_105535.jpg
    I then just rode on until I got tired. Booked a room in Chalon-sur-Saome, just south of Dijon. Now I'm happily watching the world go by...

    Today's route, 335 miles. Off to Germany tomorrow.

    Make the most of those blue skies, Wim. It’s awful weather here at the moment, windy and heavy rain.
