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.

Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.

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 ...

... a restaurant at the 1km marker, which was also where the entrance to the tunnel stood. This tunnel goes under the summit and cuts out a 1km 10% grade, but by now there was no way I was going to give in and I did the last kilometer to the very top. As I climbed this bit there was thunder banging away overhead. Connie had raced on ahead and at the top we took some pictures and I called it a day. My hands were freezing and I was afraid of not being able to ...
