... 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.

au revoir

We visited Albertville, sight of the 1992 winter Olympics and St Jean de Maurienne on our way to St Michel de Maurienne where we will base ourselves for the next week.

... nice now with blue skies showing through here and there and no rain. While it was uphill most of the way, it was relatively easy at an average of 4% so it didn't take more than an hour to get back (I can't believe I'm saying that now). Of course, as I got closer to La Grave the weather turned back to cold and wet. There's something about that town! I was too close to stop and get rain gear on now though so I pressed on until I ...

... feeling great so we don't have much to report from here, we decided to leave after 3 nights as the weather was pretty bad and there was nothing in the forecast to say it was going to improve in the near future....

That is all, we did walk into the local village during a break in the rain so see the few pictures we took...
