The Chalet des Moineuax is pretty basic but has a small swimming pool on the terrace, great views over the valley, a room to store your bike and not one, but two track pumps.
We checked in, took a dip in the pool, chatted with some Dutch guys who have been cycling around here for the past 6 days, read on the sun terrace for a while then walked back to the village to eat in the same restaurant where we had lunch. It ...

Today we ticked off several more Cols on the Route. The highlight though has to have been the decision to deviate from the RdGA. We travelled up over the Col le Bonette. What a fantastic ride. On the way up we had our photos taken by “declicphoto.net” and we have downloaded them. At the top the road was closed by pushed up snow barricades, but with a little bit of manoeuvring we were able to ...
