                                                Day 1. Approaching Andorra.


 
                                           Church in the Spanish Pyrénées.


            Approaching Angliru’s ‘unremarkable apron’; yet an unforgettable climb.
               Roz beside the bronze statue of a boot at the Cabo de Finisterre. It 
             signifies the finishing  point – for some – of the Camino de Santiago.
 
           The Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Belem, Lisbon), the monument to 
             Portugal’s Age of Exploration, during the 15th and 16th centuries.

 
Tram 28, renowned for providing tourists with a scenic, 40 minute 
                     journey through Lisbon’s steeper parts.


                                                Windmill in Odeceixe, Portugal.
 
‘The Cyclists’, by Dutch sculptor Jits Bakker, in Loulé, Portugal.

                 La Pandera’s summit. There’s still much further 
                       to climb from here than you might think.



            The ‘road’ up to the Pico de Veleta; the Iberian Peninsula’s third-highest 
                          peak and the second-highest peak in the Sierra Nevada.
 
            Close to the summit, albeit for the want of a road.

                Day 40. Reaching the end of Mark’s cycling journey towards 
                                  Solsona, with the Pyrénées in the distance.
