... a classic Tour climb and one that has been used repeatedly over the years. While painful, it was also beautiful. We topped out and had a bite to eat before descending into Valloire. From Valloire the real fun began. 18km to the top of the Col de Galibier, and it was a BEAST!! Several folks only made it to the 12km mark before bailing out and jumping in the van. Most of the ride was on slopes of 8+% ...
... most of the Col de Croix Fer not to be confused with Day Two's Croix Fre. This road had a lot of traffic and cyclists so you had to be on your toes. Fortunately the drivers are friendly to cyclists.
Pretty soon our route turned off to the left and now the road was much less busy. The Croix Fer winded around the mountainside and offered some amazing views. This was a pretty tough hill because the pitch kept changing rather than staying steady.

... The day was only ½ done so back on the
bike we climbed. During this ride the weather was clear, sunny and very hot for
the Alps. Avg temperatures were in the low 90s. Thankfully the humidity was
low. It was much better than riding in Austin in July and August. I tried to
stay focused on drinking and eating a lot throughout the day.
Our next climb, the Col des Aravia was short, only a few
miles, with an average incline of 3%. Our joke was that 3% ...
