Finally some sunshine, well at least a peek through the clouds every now and then. Ready to ride at 5.30am and the night clerk forgot to leave the key out for the shed. Another late start then I'm off to climb Col du Mollard.

Fantastic climb this one fairly long and through forest on the lower slopes and wildflowers above the cloud line. I was a little lost for a while just a little, stupid Garmin! But soon was back on track.

Until tomorrow

We found a really great little restaurant a couple of hundred meters from the hotel where I had Tartare de boeuf and Connie had a big plate of pasta.

... that had checked us in was actually the owner of the hotel and she was helped by her son and daughter in law.

Somewhat sated I took some time to wash off the sweat from the bike. I had to dismantle the front fork stem from the frame and pull out the bearing set to clean that all off. The salt from the sweat had eaten its way in and was starting to cause some rust to build up, which is not a good thing. Once I got all that done we ...
