Cols of Tour de France
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Summiting Col d' Izoard together with a friend after a tough day in the saddle, and another moment was coming to the top of the Col d' Bonnet (Last couple of hundred metres around 15%) with my Ipod on to keep me company, playing out Sam's Town from the killers just as I got to the top (The views, the other cyclists, the motorcycle, the lyrics, it was just a special moment).
What did you think of your group leader?
I thought our group leader was awesome, as he was friendly, supporting, helpful, full of incite, and more important than anything else, a cycling enthusiast through and through.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If you are considering doing this trip, train, train, and train some more, plus get as light as froome (Sadly I wasn't, but still really enjoyed). A lot of preperation, training, and some grit at times is needed, but the potentials gains of experiences and memories from such a trip, well they will all be worth it (Plus you can watch the Tour, and say to your partner, oh look I cycled up there).
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you for some fond memories of a adventure that will last forever!
