    I know about the crossing along the borders as I've ridden the Pyrenees a few times before, this trip is mainly for my wife to see it as she's never been there. I looked at the ADAC map and the Ride mag routes and came up with this circular route. I agree about booking the last night, probably goint to be in St-Jean-de-Luz.

    Well the route is pretty much locked down now, 8 days in the Pyrenees 1269 miles, average 141 miles per day. I've booked every night, so no worries on route about a bed for the night.

    Tried to ride the pass out of Larrau (not sure of the name)today and the Col’ D’aubsique and the one out of Larrau was impassable due to snow and Aubsique was closed at the top. Solid rain for the last 48 hours too. Long days but good to get out nonetheless

    Shed loads of snow over the weekend and the French don't clear the lesser passes ...

    I think there are several French pages about cycling in the Pyrenees that have updates about the passes-
