Day 1: Perpignan to Mirepoix

towards-mountainsLong, hard day from the Mediterranean coast. Nearly 160km, uphill and into a stiff headwind almost all the way. Two cols climbed…one at 514m and one at 601m and more than 1,500m of climbing in all. Everyone pretty tired this evening, as you’d expect, but pleased to have covered the distance and in fantastic sunny weather and in stunning scenery. Plenty of sore bits (sunburn, saddle and legs).

Photos from today can be found here.

    You are mental. Seriously hardcore. Think I’ll stick to 15 miles across the downs.
