... bread, cheese and sausage and had a picnic on top of the Col du Lautaret.

We then drove across the Alps again this time via Galibier and the Telegraphe where Mich pulled the pin on driving after seeing tyre tracks that lead over the edge of the narrow road.

More on Galibier tomorrow as I ride it in the opposite direction on the classic Telegraphe/Galibier 35km climb.

... I was crazy mad with the speed of the descent.

Not much else happening today, had a nice pasta lunch and may double up for dinner. Cleaned the bike it was filthy with all the rain we have had and watched a little TDF.

We are off at sparrows to drive to Le Bourg D'Oisans to spend the day in the region. I will climb the legendary l' Alpe with its 21 hairpins and the meet Mich at the Saturday markets in Le Bourg.

To rub salt into my wounded ego the SD card in the camera played up so I lost all my pics of the short 50km ride today. Oh well re-format and away we go again.

We visited Albertville, sight of the 1992 winter Olympics and St Jean de Maurienne on our way to St Michel de Maurienne where we will base ourselves for the next week.

While it was uphill most of the way, it was relatively easy at an average of 4% so it didn't take more than an hour to get back (I can't believe I'm saying that now). Of course, as I got closer to La Grave the weather turned back to cold and wet. There's something about that town! I was too close to stop and get rain gear on now though so I pressed on until I ...
