Sorry for the delayed reply. On the day I arrived here (17th), I realised that someone (most likely on one of the planes I took here) had given me a cold. It's been persistent, and I still have it after 4 days. So over 4 full days here (18th to 21st) I've only cycled on 2 of them, spending the other 2 stuck in Le Bourg-d'Oisans not doing much, getting bored, and looking up at all the lovely peaks I'm too unwell to climb! Anyway, I managed a short but nice ride yesterday, cycling up to Alpe d'Huez then on to Lac Besson (northeast of and above Alpe d'Huez). The album photos below show 2 highlights of the ride. Regards, --- Victor.
