C2C Pyrenees Ride Day 6 Aspet to Saint Girons

Breakfast at 8:30 on the road at 9:45. Had some problems getting my Garmin computer tracking on the route.

Nice riding up a valley then a short very steep climb to start the ascent to the Col de Portet d'Aspet which had some very steep section. We stopped at the memorial for Fabio Casartelli who crashed and died on the descent during the 1995 Tour de France.

It started raining halfway up so I stopped to put my vest on,

Wet and cold at the Col, I stopped with Mike and John for a coffee and torte at the lovely cafe there. Cold and wet decent then a better ride to Saint Giron in patches of sunshine.

Our lodgings for the night are next to the grand Palais des Evêques at Saint-Lizier. We had an excellent dinner of local food at that La Grange de la Cité
