The route follows the Pas de Roland, a tiny narrow twisting little road, where according to my history book Roland never set foot. No matter, it is a fun ride, along the Nive River. There was a lot of traffic, I guess because it is so extremely scenic. It couldn't be the fastest way anywhere. The road is wide enough for one car. Sometimes, not always, one car and a bike.
There were birds high up in the sky, that landed on a cliff. Larry, Shari?
Now unquestionably on the right route, the remaining descent was fun, the cars back, all still totally polite and I finished the ride with no more drama. Dinner will taste good. Lunch was the orange. A very successful day of exploring the little roads of France.
