Finally some sunshine, well at least a peek through the clouds every now and then. Ready to ride at 5.30am and the night clerk forgot to leave the key out for the shed. Another late start then I'm off to climb Col du Mollard.

Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.

... reasonable gradient as it left St Michel behind.

Until tomorrow

au revoir

Another quiet down day. There were fresh food markets up top of the town. Brent and I had a wander. At lunch Nicholas and Claire went up to buy some fresh carrots for lunch and came back a beautiful bunch with stems on. I was impressed that they did that without any language!! The carrots were good too! I wondered how much the guinea pigs would have liked those stems but unfortunately had to throw them out. :-( We headed off to find the ...

... 6.9% and a height gain of 1245 m and is the ninth highest paved road in the Alps and the sixth highest mountain pass. The maximum gradient is 10.1% at the summit. Including the Col du Telegraphe, the whole climb is 34.8 km long, gaining 2120 m. in height with an average of 6.1%. Piece of cake.

I was feeling pretty good after a day of rest and was actually finding the Telegraphe a nice ride, but not long into my climb the weather started to turn. ...
