France - E5/A63/E70 south from Bordeaux
 
Hi,

Just a heads up, most of the exists are closed until Bayonne... the exit for Dax is open, but there are road works...

If low on fuel, make sure the fill up at the first tank after getting out of Bordeaux.

North bound does have a fuel stop or two.

Yes, went down to St. Jean de Luz last weekend. The weather was terrible, large numbers of Spanish trucks which I think were trying to get out of France before the Sunday restrictions. Apart from the exits being shut the lanes have been narrowed with the hard shoulde and half the inside lane being coned off. Makes passing trucks in the spray that bit more exciting.

I thoroughly enjoy the spring weather all the way from Paris to Dax... it was a rather mixed bag of rain...

Rain rain rain
 
Last weekend I was also on that road. I saw the traffic was bad heading towards Spain. I didn't have problems the other way round as I was coming from Spain, only the rain didn't give me a break until I got to Poitiers. I have to say I got dissapointed on most of my "Gortex" gear, starting by my SIDI adventure boots, not recommended.:rain:

and more rain...
 
Me too, from Cazaubon in SW France to Santander for the ferry - or NOT!! The outgoing ferry was cancelled due to the weather so ended up riding 800 kms in really nasty conditions for nothing! Thanks Brittany Ferries!:taz:
