Our base camp for the Tour de France 2023 will be in the “Baths of Bigorre”.
As interesting as the history of the city might be, I’ll just provide you with a link to Wikipedia to read about it 😎
Of particular interest for me is the section “Climate” which is very encouraging:
It is however intensely exposed to north by north-west disturbances that collide with the terrain. This barrier effect is felt up to the foothills so that springs, autumns, and winters are cool and rainy while summers are often hot and particularly stormy.
We’ll see how that plays out…
