... bread, cheese and sausage and had a picnic on top of the Col du Lautaret.

We then drove across the Alps again this time via Galibier and the Telegraphe where Mich pulled the pin on driving after seeing tyre tracks that lead over the edge of the narrow road.

More on Galibier tomorrow as I ride it in the opposite direction on the classic Telegraphe/Galibier 35km climb.

Au revoir

... 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.

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 ...

... a couple of cars on the way down...safely of course... ;-)

At the bottom we went into the town of Bourg D'Oisan and went to the biggest of the three cycling shops to check things out. I picked up a nice pair of Assos bib shorts for about 2/3s of what we'd pay in Canada. I also got a new set of pedals for half the price of what we pay. Connie grabbed a coffee to go and then we started our way back to La Grave. The ...
