... Dave and Linda.
After a very nice omelette--finally some properly prepared eggs!--with salad, fries, and Orangina, we had a decision to make. It was pretty clear that the afternoon showers in the forecast for Gap were going to happen. So I hooked up with Dave and Linda to continue south on N85, bypassing the Col du Noyer alternate route (I've ridden it before in the rain; I didn't need to do that again), but planning on riding over Col de Manse on ...
