He took a glance to the heavens and shook his head, No No!, not today, come back tomorrow!

We took a drive up the road. It was basically free of cyclists bar a few crazy souls, one guy was trying to descend and basically slowing to a stop at the hairpins, to avoid sliding out. The poor bugger had 21 hairpins to deal with to make the bottom unscathed.

At the summit we visited the bike shop and the owner (a pommie) told us ...

Tomorrow is the Col Du ...
