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.
Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.

Today was a rest day and we slept in until 10am. I actually felt pretty good after all that riding and only had some sore muscles here and there. After dragging our butts out of bed, we wandered around town to find a cafe to get a coffee and a bite to eat but came out empty handed.
