... usually like this and we should come back Tuesday or Wednesday. He had hired a bike to that poor soul trying to descend and thought he would cancel the booking but it was his only chance to climb the legendary Alpe D'Huez so down he went, I hope he made it back up.

I didn't like the thought of descending at a standstill so decided to bail and we will go back either Tuesday or Wednesday morning as I have to climb this beast before we leave.

On the plus side we stocked ...

... I was crazy mad with the speed of the descent.

Not much else happening today, had a nice pasta lunch and may double up for dinner. Cleaned the bike it was filthy with all the rain we have had and watched a little TDF.

We are off at sparrows to drive to Le Bourg D'Oisans to spend the day in the region. I will climb the legendary l' Alpe with its 21 hairpins and the meet Mich at the Saturday markets in Le Bourg.

We visited the ski village of Valloire today just above (on the road) but below the top of the Telegraphe in elevation. I could see part of the Galibier from there. Its an intimidating looking climb.

Until tomorrow

... up a few pieces of clothing and made note of the prices for leg warmers and hats, which I thought would be necessary for the remainder of my cycling here. There was a town at the base of the climb with some shops as well so we planned on doing some price comparisons. We had a quick coffee at one of the few places that were open and then we made our way down. The road was dry all the way so I had a chance to give it a go and ...
