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.

There were two table fulls of 60'ish year old Netherlanders that were deafeningly loud, proving the theory of the Belgium folks that we'd met the evening before.

As we made our way back to the room, Connie pointed out an interested fact. She was too short to kick ...

... or so we were overtaking all the cycles, we climbed with them to 8500 ft, then descended with them the other side, the problem is we were marginally quicker than them on the uphill but alot of them were quicker than us on some of the down hills! Of our 45 miles, we were with them for 40!! but we got there slowly!

The both of us ...
