Sun and cycling through the wildflowers

... 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

... reasonable gradient as it left St Michel behind.

The descents were frightening and bloody cold, especially from the top of Col de Beau Plan with visibility at about five metres above 1000m. It was a bit of a shock when a deer darted out in front of me. I had my full winter gear on and it was barely enough.

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

Beaten by the rain!

Today the plan was to ride three or four cols, well that was the plan, the weather had other ideas.

I set off at 5.30am with just a light drizzle and if you have seen today's stage of the TDF you would know it became progressively worse.

I made it to Thones climbing the Col De Bluffy however by then I was soaked through. My rain booties and gloves had given up and became water capsules, I couldn't warm up and still had to climb over 1400 metres.

The Alps beat me ...

Mother nature gives me an ass-whoopin!

... 6.9% and a height gain of 1245 m and is the ninth highest paved road in the Alps and the sixth highest mountain pass. The maximum gradient is 10.1% at the summit. Including the Col du Telegraphe, the whole climb is 34.8 km long, gaining 2120 m. in height with an average of 6.1%. Piece of cake.

I was feeling pretty good after a day of rest and was actually finding the Telegraphe a nice ride, but not long into my climb the weather started to turn. ...

Mmmm...rest day

... the wait as the food was great. Connie and I both had big salad plates (yeah!) followed by a steak for Connie and fish & chips for me. We were almost too full for dessert, so we shared a sample platter that included Crème brûlée, Tartufo, home made icecream, and a pudding, all of which were fabulous.

By now it was almost 10pm and tomorrow it would be back to the climbing, so we took our short stroll back to the hotel and called it a night.
