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.
Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.
Woke up with high hopes of an early ride today looked out the window and could not believe how far down the mountain the cloud had rolled. Climbing big Cols was out of the question.
We took an early morning trip St Jean de Maurienne to stock up on supplies and have a coffee and croissant. The weather started getting worse so it was time for bread, cheese, salami and wine.

Hmmm...I may have to come back for ...
... today (5 July) commencing from Valloire, we are due to leave also so a little worried about holding the racers up in our van on the mountain roads!!
We (Tom) had chosen it for its bike park and spent 2 days what was on offer, although the rides were relatively short (10 miles each), they climbed around 4500ft and obviously descended around the same :)
It chilled off in the mountains and we had to get our jumpers out!!!
