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 ...

Easy

Today we went up and over the Col d'Izoard (2361m). The guidebook implies it is an easy day as it it's just 9.4km at 4.2% followed by 10.1km at 7.5%. But it was anything but. On day 8 our legs are tired so it felt bloomin hard work, but it was worth it as it is a stunning route. We have done it before from the ...

... in Nice, lying on a bed or sitting in a cafe. Only one more col to go! But as they say, "save the best for last", and that we have. For tomorrow we climb Cime de la Bonette, our guidebook says it is the highest PAVED pass in the world. It is only 40m higher than Col d'Iseran but at 2802m it is still a force to be reckoned with. That will require us to sacrifice 1600m of climbing (and possibly both knees) to defeat ...

... were running low. Then about 4km from the top the temperature plummeted and the rain continued in ernest. We were shivering so much our bikes were shaking! Thankfully once over the top there was a little cafe where we hid for a while drinking hot chocolate and eating ham and cheese omelettes. We made it safely back to the valley where it was glorious sunshine and we laid everything out to dry. Phew. An exhausting ...

Day 63: Briancon to Guillestre

... long, and others were not wide enough for two cars to pass. This gave Jimbo a rare opportunity to photograph inside the tunnel as he got stuck in the traffic jam! By the time we reached Guillestre we had both worked up quite an appetite - turns out two muffins aren't really enough sustenance for conquering mountains on a touring bike! They say a picture tells a thousand words. Well by adding more and more pictures to this blog, we are saving you guys hours of reading! Aren't we ...

    This Chateau was renovated beautifully and with great attention to detail and warmth. The owners, Jacque and Sharon were lovely and attentive. The views are stunning, the gardens peaceful and the rooms wonderful. I would stay there again and hope that others do to!
