Riding routes in Southern Spain or Southern France. Got any?

I am planning a trip with the family to Southern Spain and Souther France in Sept. Been there before, but not riding. I want to take my bike and ride everyday there. I figured if I am out by 6 AM or so, I can get in 3-4 hours of good riding before I have to be back with the wife and kids to do the rest of the day as a family. I would be going solo on my rides. We don't have plans on specific locations yet, but I am very open.

Please give me links to any routes you may have already drawn in south spain or south france in places like mapmyride.com or others.

Thanks!

The Pays Basque region has a lot to offer and the cycling is great! It also offers a lot of culture, mountains, beaches, food and history to keep the family occupied. I had a great time in Bayonne and it is not a touristy as St Jean de Luz or Biarritz making it a good base. Also you can cross over to the Basque region of Spain and do trips to San Sebastian and other places along the coast.

I reckon a ride from Provence, along the Cote'd'Azure to Barcelone would be fantastic. I got to Marseille and turned North, but I imagine it would be just as spectacular the whole way.

This page from www.biketouringtips.com has 46 links to bike touring in France information.

This page has 14 links to bike touring in Spain information.

I realize you aren't touring but some of the links point to routing information for the areas you are interested in and may point you to other informational sites.
