Our first day of real rain and it doesn't look like its going to go away. Well, we just had to gear up and get on with the plans - a 42km bike ride around the lake. My run in Lyon had started my cough up again and I was sure it was the polluted air so I was keen to get out and exercise in this beautiful clear mountain air and suck it in, so we set off at noon to 'do the loop'.

... about 10 miles from Verbier, a well-known skiing area. As usual it took a ridiculously large amount of effort to get somewhere to sleep. No surprise that there was no-one in the religious house. No campsite here so I went berserk and booked into the only B and B. There something about being soaked and cold that just puts me off wild camping. Nice dinner was a bonus.
