Earthquake

Apr 29 2014 01:06 PM | Velo Peloton in Pyrenees Cycling Lodge

We had a shaky start to the day this morning with 4.7ML and 4.4ML earthquakes centered on Hautacam, just a few kilometres away. It didn't last very long but the shaking was violent and very loud. Our electricity was out for a short time.

The first at 09:03 measured 4.7 and caused violent shaking and a very loud rumbling noise. From the first one up to 13:00 today we have had 7 tremors over 2ML. No injuries have been reported.

In the meantime I continue to cycling up hautacam a couple times a week.

Hautacam on a spring evening

Apr 06 2014 10:50 PM | Velo Peloton in Cycling

I did some work on my bike today and was just going for a ride down the Voie Verte to test it out. At Argeles I met Andrew from Scotland who was looking for directions to Hautacam, I said I go with him and show him the start. Really it would have been rude not to go the whole way. This is my 17th ride up Hautacam so for this year.
