Hannibal and his elephants

Like Hannibal and his elephants we took it upon ourselves to traverse the mighty Alps in our trusty Citroen. Driving over the Col du Glandon on our way to the village of Le Bourg D'Oisains we arrived just as the weekly markets were about to open.

A tasty breakfast of brioche and grande cafe at the local boulangerie and we were set for shopping and cycling. A visit to the local cycle shop to enquire about climbing the Alpe was in order as conditions were terrible, pouring rain ...

Sun and cycling through the wildflowers

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.

We visited Albertville, sight of the 1992 winter Olympics and St Jean de Maurienne on our way to St Michel de Maurienne where we will base ourselves for the next week.

St Jean ...

... nice now with blue skies showing through here and there and no rain. While it was uphill most of the way, it was relatively easy at an average of 4% so it didn't take more than an hour to get back (I can't believe I'm saying that now). Of course, as I got closer to La Grave the weather turned back to cold and wet. There's something about that town! I was too close to stop and get rain gear on now though so I pressed on until I ...
