... usually like this and we should come back Tuesday or Wednesday. He had hired a bike to that poor soul trying to descend and thought he would cancel the booking but it was his only chance to climb the legendary Alpe D'Huez so down he went, I hope he made it back up.

I didn't like the thought of descending at a standstill so decided to bail and we will go back either Tuesday or Wednesday morning as I have to climb this beast before we leave.

On the plus side we stocked ...

By the afternoon the rain stopped ...

... nice now with blue skies showing through here and there and no rain. While it was uphill most of the way, it was relatively easy at an average of 4% so it didn't take more than an hour to get back (I can't believe I'm saying that now). Of course, as I got closer to La Grave the weather turned back to cold and wet. There's something about that town! I was too close to stop and get rain gear on now though so I pressed on until I ...
