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.

Until tomorrow

The carrots were good too! I wondered how much the guinea pigs would have liked those stems but unfortunately had to throw them out. :-( We headed off to find the ...

... area and waited for Connie who was following not far behind. I could not stop shivering and could feel a bit of hypothermia setting in. 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 ...
