... I was crazy mad with the speed of the descent.

Not much else happening today, had a nice pasta lunch and may double up for dinner. Cleaned the bike it was filthy with all the rain we have had and watched a little TDF.

We are off at sparrows to drive to Le Bourg D'Oisans to spend the day in the region. I will climb the legendary l' Alpe with its 21 hairpins and the meet Mich at the Saturday markets in Le Bourg.

We are off for dinner soon in St Michel then tomorrow two TDF climbs are on the agenda.

Until tomorrow

Connie decided to grab a coffee at the restaurant at the pass, but I started on my way as it cleared enough for me to begin the short decent into Valloire. The break in the weather didn't last long and as I rolled into the ski village the rain was coming down in torrents. I was soaked to the bone and freezing. I found a bar/restaurant and pulled in to get out of ...

... that had checked us in was actually the owner of the hotel and she was helped by her son and daughter in law.

Somewhat sated I took some time to wash off the sweat from the bike. I had to dismantle the front fork stem from the frame and pull out the bearing set to clean that all off. The salt from the sweat had eaten its way in and was starting to cause some rust to build up, which is not a good thing. Once I got all that done we ...
