I didn't get a lot of pics of Camping collegats but I would recommend it to everyone its a cracking campsite, very friendly and in a great location being only a 15 min walk into town.

Met up with simon and what a cracking bloke he is (thumbs)

Time for some bike loving clean the chain time

after spending a couple of days at camping collegats it was time to leave, the original plan was to head back to the coast and follow it to Italy for the lgks but after advice from simon it was decided to not head that way.

My good mate steve from this parish aka orsoncarts was in france and when I found out he wasn't that far I decided to head up to see him and his lovely wife jean.

Simon very kindly offered to take me over a trail into france a damn am I glad he did, what a stunning trail and it was such a good day to finish my Spanish experience

Cheers Simon (thumbs)

To anyone who is thinking of the hiss rally get out there you will love it B)

After spending a night with me mate steve and jean it was time to head across france through the milau area and verdon to southern Italy to a small town called pigna where the start of the lgks is

I was seriously excited about this as I've wanted to ride the lgks for a long time :woohoo:

Route de Grande Alps

stopped off at a café to have a drink and met 4 greek bikers who bought me a drink before even speaking to me which was very nice indeed :)

Nipped over the col de turini into Italy to pigna.

Found a lovely little place above a bar very cheap,what I found is that it's just as cheap for a room as it is to camp :laugh:

Pigna is a cracking little place and the locals are very friendly indeed
