... 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.

Home made Fried Rice was a hit again... Then a sit by the fire to plan Padua and ...

... cyclists staying at the hotel make their way out for their rides. By 10:30 we were all packed up and I was on my way.

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 ...
