... reasonable gradient as it left St Michel behind.

The descents were frightening and bloody cold, especially from the top of Col de Beau Plan with visibility at about five metres above 1000m. It was a bit of a shock when a deer darted out in front of me. I had my full winter gear on and it was barely enough.

The French motorists do seem to be very respectful of cyclists and seem to wait patiently for a safe spot to overtake, having said that, I wouldn't risk my life riding on these narrow mountain roads.

In Annecy we had dinner in a little restaurant, L'Auberge de Savoie, recommended ...

Last day

... our reward. The girls skied well with me trailing behind and taking one or two falls. The plan was to meet Ali, Julie and Andy at Le Chalet des Neiges, which we did but only after taking a wrong turn having navigated faultlessly all day. We had a late lunch outdoors in glorious sunshine and then had a gentle ski back with Ali. Andy and I did one last short run then headed back to the hotel. What a fantastic final day to end the ...
