In the hope of getting out of the bad weather of Les Deux Alpes, we headed for our next stop near Lac De Paladru, unfortunately we didn't, if anything the weather was worse with almost constant rain for the 2days we stayed, we were still recovering from our bugs so we again spent most of our time in the van..

We took a couple of walks out in between the showers so again not much to report here....

It was mostly made up of 9-10% grades for the ...

Tomorrow we are off to visit "the roof of Europe", Chamonix to ride the cable car up to Mont Blanc at a dizzy 3842m. The views are said to be spectacular, hope we have clear weather.

au revoir

I've named my bike

A travel blog entry by kochwebb

For cyclists, the granny gear is the lowest possible gear you have at your disposal. Unless one is climbing something pretty steep it's rarely used. Yesterday and today, it was used often…very often. I’ve decided to name my bike "*****", mostly because that's what I called her numerous times yesterday, and today would be no exception.

We awoke around 8am and I was actually feeling pretty good, although a little stiff in the ...
