    +1 one on the bike build thread. Excellent work.

    If you get down to the Pyrenees, do the Spanish side (mainly Route N260) - fantastic! I also recommend the Bardanes Reales near Tudela if you’re in the Pyrenees, it’s only a little way south. I was there last year and did a RR somewhere here.

    Have a fantastic trip!

    Started late today, 13.00 due to a rain front coming in over middle Norway in the morning.
    The waiting paid off, sun broke out and all was well exept for a terrible head-wind over the Dovre mountain platou.
