Hi, Im a female in my 30's from Australia. Although I ride regularly at home, i have never done a cycle tour, so im excited about my first trip!
Im planning to ride across the Pyreneese starting in San Sebastian in mid August. I will purchase a bike in London or Spain. I will be travelling light with a saddle bag and handle bar bag. I will be couch surfing, using arm showers or airbnb websites for accomodation. I would like to ride 60 to 90km a day pending on gradient and stay for a couple of nights in some place to look around. I anticipate the whole trip will take 3 weeks or so. I would like ti include detours to some of the classic cols ie Tourmoulet ( which is on my bucket list). I plan to buy food from supermarkets, local shops and every now and then indulge in epicurean cuisine. If you have any tips, recommodations ill be glad to hear to hear from you or if you wish to join me for sections of the trip then drop me a line.
Looking forward to the mini adventure ☺
