David from Belgium rides the »Port de Balès«
The Port de Balès (or Col de Balès) is a high mountain pass in the central Pyrenees in the department of Hautes-Pyrénées in France. It connects the village of Ferrère (to the north) to that of Bourg-d'Oueil, Haute-Garonne (south-east).
The Port de Balès was featured in the 2007 Tour de France (15th stage). It is generally closed by snow for long periods during the winter but remains popular with bikers during the summer.
