... cloud with dropping temperatures.
He took a glance to the heavens and shook his head, No No!, not today, come back tomorrow!

We took a drive up the road. It was basically free of cyclists bar a few crazy souls, one guy was trying to descend and basically slowing to a stop at the hairpins, to avoid sliding out. The poor bugger had 21 hairpins to deal with to make the bottom unscathed.

At the summit we visited the bike shop and the owner (a pommie) told us ...

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.

We visited the ski village of Valloire today just above (on the road) but below the top of the Telegraphe in elevation. I could see part of the Galibier from there. Its an intimidating looking climb.

Until tomorrow

au revoir

... a couple of cars on the way down...safely of course... ;-)

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. Connie grabbed a coffee to go and then we started our way back to La Grave. The ...
