The Pyrenees Mountains are located along the border between Spain and France, extending for 267 miles from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. My wife Julie and I, along with our friend Lloyd, spent two wonderful weeks motorcycling through the Pyrenees and surrounding countryside. We traveled over 2100 miles as we traversed from east to west through the Spanish Pyrenees and then from west to east through the French Pyrenees. As we discovered during our tour of these mountains, they contain some of the best motorcycling roads in the world. The roads are wonderful and challenging, the scenery competes for your attention at every turn, the villages and sights invite you to stop and explore, and the places to spend the night are unique and charming.
