Alpine Cols of the Tour de France travellers

Hello there, I've just booked on the above tour and certainly looking forward to it.

Having ridden the Mont Ventoux weekend last year, I had to book on again and experience another exodus trip (it was superb by the way)

Just interested to know if many people have booked on, and just saying hello.

Hello :)

Hi

Steve from Cheshire, looking forward to the trip and slowly improving my climbing.

Hi Craig and Steve.

Like you guys I'm training as much as I can and seeking out as many hills as possible.

Looking forward to the tour starting tomorrow and I I think they'll be climbing mountains on the 19th that we'll be tackling.

All the best

hi

thinking of taking my own bike specialised roubaix elite compact front 11 /32 cassette..or do you think i should hire one out there..pricey as that appears.. any thoughts.

cheers craig 

I'm running the same setup as you and taking my own bike.

I aim to make the climbing as easy as possible.

I was planning on taking my own bike, but trying to get to Gatwick etc was proving to be a nightmare on a sunday etc so I've had to pay the crazy rental price

Just taking summer kit with arm and knee warmers, though i'll take a jacket if its cold or wet.

Anybody else hiring a bike?

Like Steve I'll be taking summer clothes, but also over shoes in case of any down pours.  Also long finger gloves, it might be cold on the top of those mountains.

 

overshoe, better put them in tomorrow. Packed long fingers gloves.
