... Genoa is an extremely busy port city and the traffic is murder! 15 Klms west of Genoa we found a 'parking lot campsite' in a coastal village / resort called Arenzano. After a 300 Klm run in the 'truck',.. averaging some 65kmph,.. we were looking forward to 'cocktail hour' to end the day.

The Tour de France this year doesn't go up the Col du Galibier, but they do the Col du Lautaret, which we passed on the way down, as well as the Col d'Izoard, which we climb in a couple of days. We rode past some people camped out on the side of the road to watch the tour tomorrow. It's quite exciting to ride up some of the same climbs as them! Briancon is an ...
