A circuit on the roadie

This afternoon was spent down in the Foix direction again. Whilst Andy was enjoying his French lesson I had a spin on the roadie. It was perfect weather for it, overcast and in the mid/upper 20s. I started at Verniolle and headed south and then along towards the underground cave systems of Labouiche, following another one of the circuits in our little pamphlet of rides in the area. Quiet roads, gently undulating apart from a killer climb (after already doing 33kms) from la Bastide de Serou up to Alzen - 300m of ascent in just under 4kms. Ouch! Sum total was 54kms, 1000m of ascent in 2 hrs 45m. I am tired this evening!
