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 ...

Beaten by the rain!

Today the plan was to ride three or four cols, well that was the plan, the weather had other ideas.

I set off at 5.30am with just a light drizzle and if you have seen today's stage of the TDF you would know it became progressively worse.

On the mountains there were these small creatures running all over. We couldn't work out if they looked ...

Following our short stop off at Bardonecchia, we crossed the Border into France via the unreasonably priced Mont Blanc tunnel, it only cost €57 to get through, €57, FIVE SEVEN!!

We arrived after climbing to in excess of 4000 ft at the village/town of Valloire, its a very nice village that thrives during the Ski season and relies on Cycling (Road and Mountain) through the summer.
