Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...
... and we very much enjoyed the 31km descent and stopping in Arvieux for a burger, salad and proper coffee! We made it to the campsite in good time and glorious sunshine so we went straight in the pool! Time to rest now as we have another big challenge tomorrow.

Top of 10 degrees at the Col, 14 degrees at Guillestre Elevation gain: 1150m We awoke this morning to rain pouring down outside. Bugger. The nice weather is over. Time for more Alps weather! At least it's only 52km today! The uphill began almost as soon as we left our hotel. Soon enough, we were back to our Tour de ...
