    Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...

    Today we went up and over the Col d'Izoard (2361m). The guidebook implies it is an easy day as it it's just 9.4km at 4.2% followed by 10.1km at 7.5%. But it was anything but. On day 8 our legs are tired so it felt bloomin hard work, but it was worth it as it is a stunning route. We have done it before from the ...

    ... faster than us, and they looked as tired as us! I found this quite reassuring, as most cyclists we've seen seem to just cruise past... Exhausted from the steep gradients, we tried to reassure ourselves - it's not possible for the road to keep climbing so steeply - we're only meant to climb 1110m today! It had to settle down eventually! And it kinda did. It got almost flat at times, and even went down a few ...

    The title says it all! Today we cycled from Valloire to Briancon over the Col du Galibier (2646m). The weather was against us pretty much all day, as we woke to pouring rain forcing us to drag everything inside and practically take over the sites shower block! We left several hours later with just croissants and pain au chocolats in our stomach. The climb up to the col was a relentless 17.5km at 7%, so blood ...

    Distance: 52km Cumulative distance: 3416km Best Convenience: hot cappuccinos at Col de L'Izoard Riding conditions: too many flies. Weather: wet, cold, then cloudy. Top of 10 degrees at the Col, 14 degrees at Guillestre Elevation gain: 1150m We awoke this morning to rain pouring down outside. Bugger. The nice weather is over. Time for more Alps weather! At least it's only 52km today! The uphill began almost as soon as we left our hotel. Soon enough, we were back to our Tour de ...
