We were inspired by a table of Italian cyclists who were brazenly making their packed lunch from the ham, cheese and bread on offer. They had ...

Not a bad night's sleep in the Comte Rouge in TLB. Packed up, breakfasted and away by 8:15am. Waited for the Garmin to load the route properly and the navigation worked like a dream. For some reason starting off is always tricky, especially for a town. Lots of places to go wrong.
Climbing starts from the off with a challenging 5% gradient that goes on and on. ...
