Few words this time, mostly pictures, as a way of celebrating the glorious weather and views at the end of my week here. Yes, it has been quite cool, the mornings particularly so, of course, but no complaints from a cyclist who has become accustomed to wind, rain and general lack of sun back in the UK, and precious few miles on the bike.
The photos were taken on a couple of rides: to Valdrôme via the cols of Prémol, Fays and Rossas, and to the Col de Menée, there and back. I’d not normally have dreamt I could have got up to 1400m in February, but the roads were completely clear of ice and snow. You’ll see from the photos how green the valleys are.
