Col de Telegraphe

First day riding. It started off close and cloudy but the Skies cleared as I got to the last Km of the 12Km climb to col de Telegraphe. I took things easy and opted to do the short route today. I was surprised that I was the only one who turned back. I was accompanied by our Masseuse Carl. He casually announced that he had done the Ras six times and had come sixth! I half wheeled him up Col de Telegraphe and then he had to wait for me at the bottom as I descended slowly as road surface was loose. Regret not going up the Galibier but think I made the right choice. Sitting on bed watching TdeF with Hugh. We miss Brendan but Hugh is talking to him on phone as I write. Roll on tomorrow
