    Sierra Nevada area is nice with interesting roads, there is an observation telescope at the top of one road, which I think is the highest point in Spain, (but you may already have been there). Enjoy your holiday

    Day 1

    An admin and positioning day from Cardiff to Portsmouth.

    Got up to the first dry ish day for 4 days. Result and hopefully a good omen.

    Breakfast on the holiday inn (do that’s lunch sorted too). Bimble into work to collect bike the ride back to hotel, pack and go.

    It’s been a bit like the old animals crossing the river puzzle. Leave boots here, go here collect this, back and load this etc. Happily at no stage did I end up on the bike in only my Y fronts so another result.

    I’ve enjoyed walking 5 miles a day in and out of work, only bottled once with 0.5 to go when it lashed down so I got a ride in a mates car.

    Tea break was with old mate in Bradford on Avon. Place called Merkins Farm. Lovely and very bike suitable, rural and good parking. The waitress selection process seems to centre around, “big top bollocks........you’re hired”.

    Made ferry easily, just a little rain around Salisbury but safari sagoodeee.

    Plan tomorrow, exit St Malo and blunder south ish,,,,,,,,

    Until then.....

    Day 2

    So docked in the dark to a murky and damp start. Still, goretex up and get going.

    The ferry floor was as slippery as Corbyn answering a question on brexit.

    The port was efficient, why do we always turn it into a total cake and arse party in the UK, clowns that we are

    Got to get miles done today so it’s just burn down the Dual carriageway and zone out

    New bike going sweetly. A more refined ride than my GSA.

    Rain stops after 25 mins and just damp roads to contend wth. Max 2 deg AOB imposed .

    See if we can make Limoge ish tonight ...

    I want to visit the WW2 village tomorrow....

    You off to Oradour ? That’ll cheer you up ! :-)

    I know the feeling,split with my g/f a few weeks back. She was lovely too but too many obstacles and I want to be able to bugger off on the bike a bit without getting clearance first !! Though possibly not in November.Nutter !

    Ride safe.

    I went through Lourdes a few years ago but didn't stop long, there is a nice wee place called Laruns not too far away, water may not have cured anything but the magic beer was cheaper and it wasn't full of the hopeful busloads of pilgrims

    You're correct; she was (still is I'm sure) lovely!

    I’m not complaining. It’s damp but not raining. I’ll take that in late Nov

    Onwards and I book a lowly hovel for 23 quid just north of the village.

    Outline plan, get a kip, get up, do village, crack on.

    The accommodation looks quaint on line, we shall see.

    95 Ron and Bel Vita administered, thankfully to the correct respective receptacles.

    Hopping on and let’s as Stich Jones (the Ayotolah of Rock and Rolla) would say...

    “Let’s do some distance”
