Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...

Being the highest altitude climb of our itinerary, we were hoping for something more showy. How inconsiderate! There was a small gravel track up to a lookout. We decided to walk this bit.

It was a crazy drive, we climbed to 2350m to reach the boarder of France & Italy. There was snow at the top, it ...
... out, we are off to town for manicure and gelati, then we hit the road to Lake Orta. It's a pretty easy drive on good road, 3 lane highway much of the way. Again we go through a 5 k stretch where immigrant girls are touting their wares by the side of the rural road! Every time web have to pay a toll, we have a little moment...pull over and watch what others do to make sure we get the right lane, after one of our early experiences! On the way to France we had to run one when ...
