... usually like this and we should come back Tuesday or Wednesday. He had hired a bike to that poor soul trying to descend and thought he would cancel the booking but it was his only chance to climb the legendary Alpe D'Huez so down he went, I hope he made it back up.

I didn't like the thought of descending at a standstill so decided to bail and we will go back either Tuesday or Wednesday morning as I have to climb this beast before we leave.

On the plus side we stocked ...

... wonderful villages up near the top that mainly service the ski traffic in winter and summer hikers. Two km from the summit of Col du Mollard is one such village, Albiez-Montrond. It can been seen in the pic from the summit view and where I filled my bidons.

I descended the other side of the climb and started with and Italian rider who I left behind a few k's down. He caught up at the bottom in the town of St Jean and said in broken ...

Woke up with high hopes of an early ride today looked out the window and could not believe how far down the mountain the cloud had rolled. Climbing big Cols was out of the question.

I made it to Thones climbing the Col De Bluffy however by then I was soaked through. My rain booties and gloves had given up and became water capsules, I couldn't warm up and still had to climb over 1400 metres.

... kicked up again towards the end. Connie stayed just ahead of me all the way to the top taking lots of pics. To be honest, I didn't find this climb as difficult as either Madeleine or Galibier, mostly because their distance made them more relentless.

    If you want all to be take care of, you should for sure stay at Club Med. There is nothing they haven't thought about. The rooms are luxurious and everything you need you can find in the hotel even your snowboard and skies.
