• France – Day 4 – Alpe d’Huez!

    Today we rode Alpe d’Huez one less time than the pros, but tomorrow we will ride it one more time than they do, so I figure we are even. We stopped for pics near the top on a side road to get good switchback views.

    On their first lap I was just at the crest of their climb, and for the second I was at the 500m to go banner. Following these pics are the two rides of the day – first a descent and then up Alpe d’Huez, then around the back the way the pros went on their first lap and partway back up to the hotel. A little tired, so letting pictures do the talking but may come back and write more later. We were very lucky with the weather and had a great day!
