We made it!  Three days after returning from the Pyrenees, my legs still feel dead from cycling 700 miles in 6 days; including 130 miles the last day with an ascent of the 2115m Col de Tourmalet at the end of the ride - and all in I cycled for 9 hours that day.  A huge thanks to everyone who sponsored me.
