    What a climb! The Col de L'seran is the highest paved road in Europe, coming in at about 2900 metres. The air was quite thin up there and at 50 kms of climbing I was pretty stuffed when I got to the top, but I did see my first marmot. Ran across the road and then sat up and watched me get my camera out and then ran away. John was on fire today and did not one but two big climbs adding theCol de Mt Cenis to the l'seran, well done. The downhill parts of today's ride were just amazing, goes a long way to ease the pain of getting to the top and we are very well supported by the Marmot crew. The hotel is rather interesting, Sign above the bar says English spoken, clearly only by the guests! We went over to the Tabac for a quiet beer just in time to see the local farmer taking his cows for a walk through the village. The lady in the bar happily told us all about in French, certainly entertaining. Tomorrow the is the biggy of the week the Col de Galibier. Wish me good luck!!!Read more
