Number three cycle ride which is now becoming a cycling holiday! Col du Peysouade was a beautiful cycle ride we started from our base of Bagners de Luchon and made our way slowly might I add up the Col. This is one of the stages on the Tour de France this year and what a beautiful ride. Parts of it did remind me of the Lake District fells it's quite different to the French Alps but just as beautiful. Passing quaint old villages, chickens, Sheep with bells and fields and fields of wild flowers.
The last few hairpins to the top
Poppies have always inspired me and on this cycle ride they lined the route blowing softly in a warm breeze nearly all the way to the top.
