... wonderful villages up near the top that mainly service the ski traffic in winter and summer hikers. Two km from the summit of Col du Mollard is one such village, Albiez-Montrond. It can been seen in the pic from the summit view and where I filled my bidons.

I descended the other side of the climb and started with and Italian rider who I left behind a few k's down. He caught up at the bottom in the town of St Jean and said in broken ...

Riding through the mist

... was still cold and the cloud was very low. I was itching for a ride so decided to tackle some local Cols near us.

They were some great climbs, Villerzembrun climb with its hairpins and early steep ramps out of St Michel and Col de Beau Plan with forest mist through the clouds on quiet roads and only a fool like me out riding them.

The Alps beat me ...

The first 15km to the start of the climb to Col du Telegraphe was pretty much undulating and a nice warm up. Telegraphe was a 12km climb averaging 6% with about 5km of +8%. This was followed by a short downhill, then a flat bit through the town of Valloire, where the Col du Galibier begins. Galibier is 18.1 km long at an ...

... kilometers followed by long stretches of very gradual climbs, flats and downhills. The last 8km started in a skiing village and was really steep all the way to the top. The roads overall were in fairly poor condition and only wide enough for one car in the final 6km. I drove the car while Connie hung out the window snapping pics like mad. At around the half way mark in one of the valleys we passed a rather large fast moving river with ...
