Aarch!!! Your pics made my skin itch every where, Gilles!
Soo badly I want to revisit (especially) the French Alps. They are simply great.

Well... the Pyrenees will do for next year @ VIM20...  ;D


There is always the opportunity to detour on the way down or back or both  ;D

No not me next year, I was merely pointing out to Bernard his options, not that I needed to...

I'm not back for at least three years, I have other trips planned. It is back to the UK next year with my wife for her cousin's wedding - that will be a car trip around the England and Scotland plus some time in Ireland, then north America (USA, Canada and Alaska) in 2019 on a bike for about then weeks. After that I have not planned.  But, I may yet take you up on the offer of riding through the Alps at some point in the future. I loved the little bit I did and I'd like to spend a lot more time doing those passes.

Yes more than likely, I can't get the images of the Alps out of my head from the tiny bit that I rode (nor do I want to). So my planning and scheming mind is at work trying to figure out a means to make it happen. When I do come back it will be to ride those mountain roads in Europe, I've had enough of flat Europe  ;D
