Would you believe it ??

I actually had a rest day, my first one since March but I felt with the long drive down France yesterday it would be training just to tick a box.

Today though we did over 70 miles and rode for more than 4hours as we checked out the route for the next Wednesdays race. I’m not the best at bothering with routes but this one stayed in my mind from last year and was every bit as tough as expected. The climbs are long slow the descents are fast. The views are spectacular and nothing gets your concentration up more than 40mph into a corner knowing that if you don’t make the turn it is a long way down off the edge!!!!!

Watched the Tour from the base of AdH today and then retired to a cafe. Amazing how excited you get just to see these guys go past for 10 seconds. Tomorrow we will train early before watching the TT then we will move properly to the Alps and start getting ready for the triathlon.

Love it here as they like cyclists and make you feel very welcome
