This Autumn I took part in another exciting adventure. This time on my motorbike for a “Cross Pyrenees Challenge”. The trip was a physical challenge with lots of varied terrain, the unique challenge of riding through the mountains at altitude and a gruelling itinerary, stopping only for food and sleep. We took in the whole of Northern Spain riding from Coast to Coast ending up in Empuria on the Eastern Coast after a week of solid riding.
Through mountain landscapes to desert, the open plains and eventually arriving on the golden sands of the Costa Blanca, a fantastic road trip and again, raising awareness of Crohns & Colitis. Once we got to our coastal destination, we rode all the way back again before crossing by Ferry back to the UK.
I’ve recently rediscovered my passion for motorcycles after a long break from competitive moto-cross. Again, I used the Garmin Virb Elite camera to document my trip across the mountain tops of Europe.
