... 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.

au revoir

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

The descents were frightening and bloody cold, especially from the top of Col de Beau Plan with visibility at about five metres above 1000m. It was a bit of a shock when a deer darted out in front of me. I had my full winter gear on and it was barely enough.

We are off for dinner soon in St Michel then tomorrow two TDF climbs are on the agenda.

This tunnel goes under the summit and cuts out a 1km 10% grade, but by now there was no way I was going to give in and I did the last kilometer to the very top. As I climbed this bit there was thunder banging away overhead. Connie had raced on ahead and at the top we took some pictures and I called it a day. My hands were freezing and I was afraid of not being able to ...

... kilometers followed by long stretches of very gradual climbs, flats and downhills. The last 8km started in a skiing village and was really steep all the way to the top. The roads overall were in fairly poor condition and only wide enough for one car in the final 6km. I drove the car while Connie hung out the window snapping pics like mad. At around the half way mark in one of the valleys we passed a rather large fast moving river with ...
