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.

There ...

The Alps beat me ...

Mother nature gives me an ass-whoopin!

Connie arrived and brought in a towel and some dry clothes while I tipped back a couple of strong hot coffees to try to warm up. As we sat there a massive thunderstorm raged outside the open doors. I was seriously contemplating calling it a day, but the storm passed quickly and it started to clear up a bit, so I decided ...

... the car to see the local sites, but first we had to gas up...or rather diesel up. we got to an Agip station but couldn't find diesel, which seemed odd. They had petrol, another pump called gazole, and something else called diesel-supreme which was outrageously priced and therefore couldn't be diesel. The lady at the casse confirmed that gazole was in fact diesel. Now why is it that in every country in Europe they call it diesel but the French have ...
