38 miles at 10.3mph. Max 40mph
The morning is spent ordering some bike bags and sending them to Barcelona so we can take our bikes on the train back to Paris and then london. We leave Anglet in the afternoon and straight away we are into the foot hills of the Pyrennes. The hills are steep but short, peaking around 300m. In the distance we can see the real mountains towering over us. We ride for for 3 hours, up and down constantly and arrive in a town called St Jean Pied du Port which means St Jean foot of Port. The town is one of the many starting points for the El Camino de Santiago, a popular pilgrimmage and walk going through southern france and northern spain. As we eat our dinner, we are treated to a shower, rainbow, then a thunder storm.
