Woke up with high hopes of an early ride today looked out the window and could not believe how far down the mountain the cloud had rolled. Climbing big Cols was out of the question.

We took an early morning trip St Jean de Maurienne to stock up on supplies and have a coffee and croissant. The weather started getting worse so it was time for bread, cheese, salami and wine.

By the afternoon the rain stopped ...

We stopped for a coffee at 2000 odd metres where their is a coffee shop complete with Donkeys,
go figure?

After our descent we toured around the picture postcard perfect town of Chamonix ...

Mmmm...rest day

... a special name for it? Ah, the French.

All tanked up with gazole we made our way and the first sign we saw was for Col de la Croix de Fer, another major climb on the Tour de France circuit. I was aware that this climb was in the area but unfortunately I was just not able to fit it into the plans. That said, nothing said we couldn't just drive on up. This Col is a long one at 28km long. It was mostly made up of 9-10% grades for the ...
