We headed over to the Lavelanet area today and, to make a change from a roadie ride, Andy and I had an excellent little mountain bike ride, repeating a circuit that I did with Pat last year. The red no. 9 circuit which took in Bélesta, Aiguillon and Lesparrou was wonderfully dry this time and it took us just over 1 1/2 hours to complete the 20kms with 300m of height gain. A lovely outing. Stats on the usual site.

While we were over that way, we popped in to see a cottage in Lesparrou that I thought could have potential as a base for us for the winter. But it was TINY!! So that one was quickly scratched from the list of potentials. We then popped along the Montségur road from Bélesta to Fougax et Barrineuf to check out the location of another couple of winter let possibilities. We may return next week for viewings. In the meantime, we have got potential buyers coming to view our house tomorrow and also on Monday, so fingers crossed we get a bite!
