Our last full day in Alpe d'Huez is another belter. Awoke at 7am to see the sun streaming in through the window. Not a hint of a cloud anywhere....just the way I like it, home or away.

I was planning to get a reasonably lengthy ride in today, +100kms and then put the bike away until the Etape du Tour on Sunday. Us old codgers …

Day 13 - Hope there's some sun at L'Ile au Soleil

We leave Grenoble today for Alpe d'Huez. Before heading out Sue wanted to venture into the main shopping area and have a look around all the shops.....however we forget that today was Bastille day and almost all the shops were closed. Too bad, we'll have to leave the shopping for another day.

Time to get on the road to Alpe d'Huez.

Hannibal and his elephants

Like Hannibal and his elephants we took it upon ourselves to traverse the mighty Alps in our trusty Citroen. Driving over the Col du Glandon on our way to the village of Le Bourg D'Oisains we arrived just as the weekly markets were about to open.

A tasty breakfast of brioche and grande cafe at the local boulangerie and we were set for shopping and cycling. A visit to the local cycle shop to enquire about climbing the Alpe was in order as conditions were terrible, pouring rain ...

... 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.

au revoir

... hotel. Connie had arrived much earlier and was in relax mode. I spent the next half hour in a hot showing trying to warm up again. By then it was late already and we wandered around the little village to find a spot to eat, but we ended up in the same little bistro as the evening before and had another great meal. From there is was back to the hotel just in time to watch Germany beat up on Brazil. What a great way to finish up the day!

    Second stay here, consistently good place. Plenty of space and well appointed for a French hotel. Service is always pleasing.

    Third time over six years I have been to this hotel. The food is good, the rooms clean and spacious and the internet connection is efficient. The hotel bar and dining room have a fantastic outlook over the Alp and down to the valley below. If travelling with a bike, the hotel catres for all cyclists needs including bike storage and arranging pre and post-ride massages if required. Great stuff.

    This is my third stay at Pic Blanc, and the rooms are newly renovated, and the service welcoming (they even recognised us at reception). Just a quality establishment, with great facilities.
    We are here to ride the Marmotte Gran Fondo, and this hotel looks after cyclists very well.
