... so heat exhaustion and dehydration were not the threats they were for yesterday's cyclists.
Our nominal route today included 6 "Cols"; admittedly, a couple of them were pretty close together. The BIG peaks were Col de Pailheires (2001m) and Col de Jau (1500+m), and they were NOT close together! It was a long day of cycling and climbing, punctuated ...

In retrospect, I think the sign refers to the maximum grade over any kilometre, rather than maximum grade for any shorter distance, because for the first time I was going slow enough that flies became a problem, something I have heard others complain off but heretofore haven't experienced. The bottom of the ascent is ...
