On the way back, as we were driving back down towards Hospitalet, we saw 8 or 10 cycle tourers making their way up the hill. But these weren't any old cycle tourers (Jamie, you'll love this!). They appeared to have especially extended bike frames which were built to accommodate the biggest loads I have ever seen being carried on a bike! Check out the helmet on top of the sun hat!Excuse the poor quality photo but I was hanging out of the car window at the time ;-)
This evening, my birthday dinner has been a very tasty Encornets farcis au four et sardines grosses farcies accompanied by our local equivalent of Champagne, Blanquette de Limoux, which is rather nice I have to say. Santé!
