In the hope of getting out of the bad weather of Les Deux Alpes, we headed for our next stop near Lac De Paladru, unfortunately we didn't, if anything the weather was worse with almost constant rain for the 2days we stayed, we were still recovering from our bugs so we again spent most of our time in the van..

We took a couple of walks out in between the showers so again not much to report here....

Bagged my first Col the De La Forclaz and I was hurting, I hope it jet lag hangover as I struggled up the beast of a climb, only cat one but long stretches of 10+ %.
On top is a ...

Connie not the support I'd hoped for

... an hour later.

We had a bite to eat in one of the restaurants on Aravis and I loaded up on water for the rest of the ride. Some of you may recall that on our last trip to Europe on motorcycles, our stops revolved around me having a local beer and Connie a strong coffee. This time around it seems to be me getting a liter of water and Connie having a Crepe. I left Connie behind to do some souvenir hunting and made my way down the mountain. It was ...
