... usually like this and we should come back Tuesday or Wednesday. He had hired a bike to that poor soul trying to descend and thought he would cancel the booking but it was his only chance to climb the legendary Alpe D'Huez so down he went, I hope he made it back up.

I didn't like the thought of descending at a standstill so decided to bail and we will go back either Tuesday or Wednesday morning as I have to climb this beast before we leave.

On the plus side we stocked ...

At the bottom we went into the town of Bourg D'Oisan and went to the biggest of the three cycling shops to check things out. I picked up a nice pair of Assos bib shorts for about 2/3s of what we'd pay in Canada. I also got a new set of pedals for half the price of what we pay.
