... cloud with dropping temperatures.
He took a glance to the heavens and shook his head, No No!, not today, come back tomorrow!

We took a drive up the road. It was basically free of cyclists bar a few crazy souls, one guy was trying to descend and basically slowing to a stop at the hairpins, to avoid sliding out. The poor bugger had 21 hairpins to deal with to make the bottom unscathed.

At the summit we visited the bike shop and the owner (a pommie) told us ...

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.

We visited the ski village of Valloire today just above (on the road) but below the top of the Telegraphe in elevation. I could see part of the Galibier from there. Its an intimidating looking climb.

Until tomorrow

au revoir

... kicked up again towards the end. Connie stayed just ahead of me all the way to the top taking lots of pics. To be honest, I didn't find this climb as difficult as either Madeleine or Galibier, mostly because their distance made them more relentless. At the top was a rather large ski village and there were a number of places that were selling cycling gear. Most of the rest of the village like hotels and restaurants were closed up. ...
