We've left Lourmarin with some sorrow, but soon perked up when we got into the Alps. It's been a perfect day, the trees are turning Autumn colours and although it's 26 degrees there's snow on the high tops. Briancon has this amazing fort built to keep the Italians out many years ago. Tomorrow we go over the mountain to Italy toward ...
... note brought a rye smile to my face. As I navigated the one way system out of the old town the sound of the bike echoed off the old stone walls. Soon onto the open road, traffic was quiet and there was a cool chill in the air of the clear mountain morning, I was lucky as it was an almost cloudless sky which would result in great views and pictures from the summit. Soon the turn off came to Col de la Bonette - 2802m - and I took a photo of the sign which highlighted it as ...

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 ...
