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.

The Alps beat me ...

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 ...

... reached the low hanging clouds and rain started to fall. Connie was concerned about the weather and stopped to wait for me to pass fairly often, which was reassuring. Within the last couple of kilometers the rain was coming down pretty heavily and thunder was growling overhead, but by the time I reached the summit the rain and thunder was diminishing and while we stopped for some photos the rain stopped altogether. We could see the surrounding ...
