So many nice sunrise pict I could have taken today just on the first 5 miles of my “long ride of the week”, but just savored them visually as I pedaled by the beach. Hate stopping for Picts only!! Here is a few later on. Hot n humid AF!!!

**Side story: so at my 1/3 point, I always stop at a bar that is open by 7am and serves breakfast. I always have the girl at the bar fill my bottle with ice and water, get a glass of water, and then leave her a nice tip. There were these 2 crusty old dudes sitting there looking rough to say the least. Both had 3 empty glasses of beer, one full, and an ashtray with several butts in it while one more cig is lit up. Mind you, this is about 7:30AM!! So, it forever redeemed me from feeling guilty about having a beer mid morning on sunday at the end of my ride!!!

Besides, my Director Sportif and Coach Extraordinaire approves anyway!!

Not exactly today ... I drove the support van for a group of cyclists last week all around the French and Italian alps and took my camera along. Here are a few impressions:

Yes, very well done.

At the Col du Galibier a couple of days ago.
My worst time down to Lautaret ever.
Ah, the mighty Galibier...I would have guessed that’s the Lautaret side, but looks like you’re ascending, versus descending... here’s a pic l took looking down towards the Lautaret side before descending. It was a cold and wet climb from the other side via Col du Telegraph and Valloire, but by the time we made our way down to La Grave, the sun was shining and we could enjoy a cold beer before finishing descending the Galibier then up to Les Deux Alpes for the night... which during that 6km ascent was pouring rain again and cold. Turns out our hotel was boarded up but they failed to get word out in time. Luckily, a local pub, which had rooms normally just open during ski season, made an exception and let us stay there the night. It was an epic day all round.

It's taken from the hairpin (or rather the edge of the parking lot) on the top looking down towards the Valloire side. Your shot looks like the way I felt descending to Lautaret. I was wearing my Schlosshund and knee warmers by then mind you.

Yes, that’s right re the perspective I took the shot from. We had full rain gear, leg and arm warmers underneath as well. One of my most epic days from memories over there.
