Switzerland - Italy - France : all in a days riding !
12.07.2015 - 12.07.2015
Breakfast in Switzerland, Lunch in Italy and Dinner in France.
Riding the Route des grande Alpes - Rugged Rocky High Country - totally different to the Alps we have been riding.
A great day starting with the St. Bernard Pass (2469m) where we stopped for lunch in Italy.
We are a very long way from home - Sydney 18,240 kms.
Followed by the Petit St. Bernard Pass (2188m),
the Col de I'Iseran (2764m) I think this is the highest we have done so far !!
and some pretty amazing riding with unbelievable views and "huge" guard rails to stop us going over the edge -
and the final pass for the day - Col du Telegraph (1957m)
Coming into Valloire we found a "hay" monument to Marco Pantani who won the Galibier Climb in 1998
It is still very hot here in Europe - 30plus degrees most of the day.
We stopped at Valloire for the night which is a really pretty village.
