Apres un reveil sous les nuages, nous avons eu la chance de voir la meteo s'ameliorer. Nous avons franchi deux cols avant d'enteprendre une longue descente et nous avons eu la chance de traverse tout le jolli village avant de decouvrir en fin qu'on devait faire un km de plus en montant pour arriver …
Our first day of real rain and it doesn't look like its going to go away. Well, we just had to gear up and get on with the plans - a 42km bike ride around the lake. My run in Lyon had started my cough up again and I was sure it was the polluted air so I was keen to get out and exercise in this beautiful clear mountain air and suck it in, so we set off at noon to 'do the loop'.

And when you get a railway, a river, a major road and a footpath all trying to get through a gorge the easiest way is to send the footpath all over the place. Made for some interesting locations.
