... and we very much enjoyed the 31km descent and stopping in Arvieux for a burger, salad and proper coffee! We made it to the campsite in good time and glorious sunshine so we went straight in the pool! Time to rest now as we have another big challenge tomorrow. The book describes the climb tomorrow as 'testing'. ...

The title says it all! Today we cycled from Valloire to Briancon over the Col du Galibier (2646m). The weather was against us pretty much all day, as we woke to pouring rain forcing us to drag everything inside and practically take over the sites shower block! We left several hours later with just croissants and pain au chocolats in our stomach. The climb up to the col was a relentless 17.5km at 7%, so blood ...

It's been a wet start and finish to our first wedding anniversary today.

Currently tucked in our tent, enjoying looking through the photos so far while the rain continues ...

We enjoyed the occasional short downhill section, which broke up the climbing. While climbing through the forest, we were joined by a large number of hitch-hikers. I think there were about 20 or 30 at a time, all sitting on our handlebars and weighing us down for about 5km of the climb! These hitch hikers ...

... we would have to wait a further 45 minutes. We slipped into Bourg du Oisans for a coffee and croissant. Then rolled back to the bus. The drive was amazing up to the lauturet. Climbing 2000 vertical metres. Dave had his first experience with a French squat toilet and came back out to ask for instructions of how to use it. The climb from Lauturet was breathtaking, ...
