... bread, cheese and sausage and had a picnic on top of the Col du Lautaret.

We then drove across the Alps again this time via Galibier and the Telegraphe where Mich pulled the pin on driving after seeing tyre tracks that lead over the edge of the narrow road.

As I left for the base of the climb, which was mostly a downhill ride of about 25km through the valley, the rain got heavy. I was building up some pretty good speed of 40+ km/h and could have gone faster but was tentative because of the wet roads. I passed through a few tunnels that were a nice break from ...

Of our 45 miles, we were with them for 40!! but we got there slowly!

The both of us ...
