Le Cure Highlight:
Wow, so many… The ‘Curista’ Spirit takes some topping, even on the ‘hilly’ bits (Chapeau, Team Elite!); Gibbo’s parents’ cheery smiles and never-ending jelly babies; Big Dave and the gang riding back down Alpe D’Huez to give me a rousing, last-rider entourage, to the finish; The Ride of the Day Yellow Cap was pretty special too!
Col de l'Iseran raised some philosophical questions, relating to bicycles and mountains. And that final ascent up Alpe D’Huez had me digging deep, while my lungs were trying to escape through my ears. The answer to my question though… ‘Yes, absolutely, 100%’.
Ride at your own pace, look up and keep smiling. You’re doing something amazing.Donate to Henry Majed
