Our last day was a thunderous one so no riding and in fact the electricity went off twice so we nearly missed the Cavendish sprint. since we didn't want to have a rainy ride we went to Briancon to look at its walled citadal and take heaps of pix of old buildings (to follow..if this wifi will let me).
Pyractif in Bertren..actually we're self catering and currently there's only 4 of us although this will alter in a coupla days.
The journey over to where we are now was a beast..slow as, since everyone but EVERYONE was on the road moving from 1 holiday location to another. This trip has made us decide that when we move next we'll do it over 2 days, so well probably leave here a day early and break the back of the journey on Friday. we cant make up our mind if we should overnight...Cannes Nice Monaco! Truly I dont mind paying for a toll road if it actually allows you to go fast..however this wasn't the case today and we ended up paying about 30 euros tolls for the prviledge of going really slow. And then for no reason speeding up and then again slowing down!!
we were right at the base of alpe d'huez, so there were always crowds of cyclists around...
