Finally some sunshine, well at least a peek through the clouds every now and then. Ready to ride at 5.30am and the night clerk forgot to leave the key out for the shed. Another late start then I'm off to climb Col du Mollard.

Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.

Tomorrow is the Col Du ...

We found out that ...

Following our short stop off at Bardonecchia, we crossed the Border into France via the unreasonably priced Mont Blanc tunnel, it only cost €57 to get through, €57, FIVE SEVEN!!

We arrived after climbing to in excess of 4000 ft at the village/town of Valloire, its a very nice village that thrives during the Ski season and relies on Cycling (Road and Mountain) through the summer.

There is a big cycle event (Road) ...
