... we started getting glimpses of the mountain through the clouds, but it was not the one we had gone to see. Perhaps we will see it on our ride. On our return to Geneva, we have started our preparations for the next ride. Doing our homework on the night before. That's generally how we do things. For the first time we are not following signs and we don't have a little map pack with relatively detailed maps to follow. So we are ...

... done so far. Then down... Surprisingly, my legs weren't feeling too bad. I think the skins work! Despite our less than enthusiastic start, today's riding was a vast improvement on yesterday's. We had views, very little traffic, and only light rain! Also, it was our last day of riding before two rest days in Geneva! The hills were slow-going - it took an hour to cover the first 10km!
