We hired (what turned out to be pretty inadequate! ie ******!!) mountain bikes from the bike shop in Bourg and headed up to Les 2 Alps in the van. Four bikes in there is a squeeze!! We tested the bikes on the cross country trails then bought two ...
We headed towards the Col du Golibier but unfortunately the road was closed as its too dangerous to drive/ride. We headed up to the Col du Sarenna instead, which is the other side of the mountain to the Alpe d'huez. It was incredible! The summit was unreal. We were almost in the snow!! We stopped for a banana and a rest, the continued on. We stopped at the summit of the Alpe d'huez for a coffee and shared a pizza. We sat outside in the sunshine - we ...

Not quite in time for the rain to start but luckily we were most of the way down the mountain before it got too heavy. Loving our new campsite ...
