  1. Hi Pedal Dancer - Remember us Tom & Courtenay? - we met you on Independence Pass this summer during the Pro Cycling Challenge. We are planning our trip to France next year and I wanted to see if you could direct us to a few good places to stay in the Pyrenees. The Cyclelodge you write about in your blog is full during the time we want to go so we are looking for other options. Your input would be greatly appreciated. You may email me at tcmurphy2001@yahoo.com. Hope to hear from you, Thanks Courtenay

  2. Of course I remember both of you and think of you often! Great to hear from you. This is an excellent question. I plan to return to France again this year myself to ride and do more research on gathering good options for cyclist accommodations. I will certainly write to you by email and offer what I know now (before I publish the options). It is that time of year isn't it? Time to plan plan plan. p.s. Paddy at VeloPeloton said he has been booked for months, still I am glad you tried, you never know when he has a cancellation.
