Riding through the mist

Woke up with high hopes of an early ride today looked out the window and could not believe how far down the mountain the cloud had rolled. Climbing big Cols was out of the question.

We took an early morning trip St Jean de Maurienne to stock up on supplies and have a coffee and croissant. The weather started getting worse so it was time for bread, cheese, salami and wine.

By the afternoon the rain stopped ...

We just finished the tour du Mont Blanc - 180km, 3 countries, 9 days! Also some sore feet by the end...

Think Andy was a bit de estates to be in Chamonix in summer rather than winter, but ...

Beaten by the rain!

The Alps beat me ...

Tomorrow I climb the Col de L'Arpettaz a climb full of hairpins and a little known gem down towards Albertville.

Rain is forecast so it could be interesting.

... the wait as the food was great. Connie and I both had big salad plates (yeah!) followed by a steak for Connie and fish & chips for me. We were almost too full for dessert, so we shared a sample platter that included Crème brûlée, Tartufo, home made icecream, and a pudding, all of which were fabulous.

By now it was almost 10pm and tomorrow it would be back to the climbing, so we took our short stroll back to the hotel and called it a night.
