Alpine cols of the Tour de France
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Climbing alpe d'huez after 72km on the last day and being in the 50th percentile on strava, as I am not a climber.
What did you think of your group leader?
Thierry was motivated and fun. Would often provide further riding for those who were keen after the main ride which I took the opportunity to do on one day when we headed back over the mountains into Italy. It was nice to have an official photographer.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
This is much easier than the Pyrenean coast to coast if you are deciding on which to do and are not a fit rider.
