Tomorrow we are off to visit "the roof of Europe", Chamonix to ride the cable car up to Mont Blanc at a dizzy 3842m. The views are said to be spectacular, hope we have clear weather.

au revoir

... 8217;ve come against so far with numerous switchbacks and grades over 11%. After that the road eased into grades averaging 4 to 8%, which by now was not too bad…hell, there was actually even a kilometer of downhill about half way. It was not to last. Madeleine is renowned to be one of the toughest climbs around and it didn’t disappoint. The fact that I was bagged because I had done more climbing than planned the previous day ...
