... I was crazy mad with the speed of the descent.

Not much else happening today, had a nice pasta lunch and may double up for dinner. Cleaned the bike it was filthy with all the rain we have had and watched a little TDF.

We are off at sparrows to drive to Le Bourg D'Oisans to spend the day in the region. I will climb the legendary l' Alpe with its 21 hairpins and the meet Mich at the Saturday markets in Le Bourg.

We are off for dinner soon in St Michel then tomorrow two TDF climbs are on the agenda.

The first half of Galibier was very nice at 4-6% grade (crazy to think I'm finding that nice at this stage) and was too warm for the rain jacket I had on, so I took that off and stowed it in one of my back pockets. By the half way point the climb began to get steeper, swinging between 8 and 10%, and a light rain began to fall. Now that I was ...

... is the French love for pizza. Every block had a pizzeria, many of which were closed this being Sunday. Having had our fill of pizza last night, we found only one other restaurant open that had other selections. The place was full and the single waiter told us there would be a half hour wait, we didn't have much of a choice there so we waited at the bar. Within 20 minutes we were seated amongst the other guests that were staying at the hotel. It ...
