Sun and cycling through the wildflowers

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.

There ...

... reasonable gradient as it left St Michel behind.

The descents were frightening and bloody cold, especially from the top of Col de Beau Plan with visibility at about five metres above 1000m. It was a bit of a shock when a deer darted out in front of me. I had my full winter gear on and it was barely enough.

We are off for dinner soon in St Michel then tomorrow two TDF climbs are on the agenda.
au revoir

Beaten by the rain!

... and if the weather permits I will add the Montee La Toussure at 1705m.

Right outside our doorstep is the road to the Col Du Telgraphe and the Galibier which tops out at a frightening 2645m. That's looking like my Sunday sparrows ride.

We visited the ski village of Valloire today just above (on the road) but below the top of the Telegraphe in elevation. I could see part of the Galibier from there. Its an intimidating looking climb.

Until tomorrow

au revoir

... the wait as the food was great. Connie and I both had big salad plates (yeah!) followed by a steak for Connie and fish & chips for me. We were almost too full for dessert, so we shared a sample platter that included Crème brûlée, Tartufo, home made icecream, and a pudding, all of which were fabulous.

By now it was almost 10pm and tomorrow it would be back to the climbing, so we took our short stroll back to the hotel and called it a night.

Valloire

Following our short stop off at Bardonecchia, we crossed the Border into France via the unreasonably priced Mont Blanc tunnel, it only cost €57 to get through, €57, FIVE SEVEN!!

We arrived after climbing to in excess of 4000 ft at the village/town of Valloire, its a very nice village that thrives during the Ski season and relies on Cycling (Road and Mountain) through the summer.

There is a big cycle event (Road) ...
