So we headed out early June for Geneva with our bikes and he had shed 2 stone and was fighting fit.
Having landed at Geneva we put the bikes together and headed out into the dark aiming for Thonon Les Bains from where we would strike out into the Alps .....yippee..........such a privilege again !!
Difficult not to get boring with these blogs so lets move on and you can see the ride through pics later on...................

Hammering down the Col de L'Iseran. Somewhere along here was my fastest ever so far on a bicycle .......61.5mph. VSF steady as a rock !!
Snow walls on the Iseran.
VSF T900 against snow wall on the Iseran. We were the first cyclists over the col for 2014. Opening party was still there when we went over the top .
Trundling up the second part of the Galibier.Going up at the start of a day for once, rather than tackling it after other climbs, was really pleasurable !!
Chis is a speck against the wall sof the Iseran. Without a doubt my facourite col.....both up and down and the beautiful scenery.
