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 ...
Distance: 69km Cumulative distance: 3531km Best Convenience: campsite at Isola with a restaurant!

We stopped at a bar for a quick coffee. It was showing the France Germany game. ...
... was beautiful and miserable all at the same time. If you know me well, you know that I love sleep. I can sleep for days and not think twice about it, but I also always have so much to do, and not to do, that I can't waste away the days sleeping. Breakfast at the hotel was DELICIOUS and HUGE, two very important things for me. Box of cereal, milk, bread, croissant, pastry, orange juice, tea, banana, granola. I was pretty happy. After this ...
