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.

Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.

Until tomorrow

au revoir

The last 6 kilometers was truly hell. The rain was really building up, at times becoming snow and hail, and there were gusts of wind so hard I was actually thrown over. Once again, fast reflexes and last minute unclipping saved me from going down completely. Connie ...

... went to the delicatessen across the road where we got some fabulous goose liver pate, then headed back to the patio behind the hotel to eat. Connie made do with a coffee out of the vending machine. I should mention that this hotel is a gem. Great layout with the parking and cycle storage, but beyond that the rooms were nice and the whole hotel had this thousand year old feel to it but still was quite modern and very well kept. We found out that ...
