The Pyrenees France, Andorra, Spain
 
This is a short picture - report of our last trip in September 2011.
( I was not shure were to post , is it better in the day trip section or here in the Ride Report section???. It is my first RR.)

A few days without bike in barcelona and a short visit at the costa brava, but later more, if you want.
