Coast to coast across the Pyrenees – by bike. 5-9 June 2009. Peace Direct supporter Rory Souter has recently returned from his 450-mile (708km) cycle from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean through the Pyrenees. It’s a four and a half day event and can be undertaken at any time during the summer; it follows a prescribed route through the mountains and takes in 18 ‘cols’ or mountain passes, many of which are well renowned as classic Tour de France climbs.  Read his full account below (it’s exhausting just reading it!)
