You’ve outdone yourself @Basilic! And now I know what inspired the shape of Toblerone chocolate, so educational as well.

Lovely photos Basilic.

Time to wrap my report up. Day 6 of my French cols trip, the task was to get from Oz near Allemond to the hotel in Huez village. The view in the morning was spectacular.
Image

Fuel up before the hard work. I love boulangeries.
Image

First I did the Col d'Ornon, pretty and straightforward, then descended to take the very minor road that climbed to Villard Reymond on the opposite side of the valley from the Alpe. This is a stiff and prolonged climb.
Image

Heading along the ridge at altitude, the road turns to gravel for a couple of km. I really enjoyed that. I'd love to do a trip focussed on Alpine gravel.
Image

From this side of the valley there are amazing views. You get a helicopter view of Bourg d'Oisans.
Image

You can see pretty much the complete length of Alpe d'Huez.
Image

The descent after Villard Notre-Dame includes four unlit, wet tunnels.
Image

The Alpe always has to be done.

Love that photo of all of Alpe D'Huez, so many hairpins! I was there last spring, but it was on the school skiing trip, so I didn't have my bike :( It's beautiful in the snow too.

I got a bit too excited when I saw the truncated spur on the left of the same photo when I was there :D I guess I had a good geography teacher.
