In a comment to the previous post about the St. Gotthard Pass, William, chair of the Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome points out diplomatically “You know that is a picture of the Great St Bernard Pass of course”. Well, in all honesty, I think I got distracted by the bike and thought I was posting a picture of the St. Gotthard Pass. The sign is a bit of a giveaway however…. I hopefully redeem myself with this striking picture of the cobbles near the top of the St. Gotthard Pass and just part of a wheel!
In the spirit of true Yorkshire pedantry, Which I am sure as a fellow Yorkshireman you will appreciate in all its good intentioned will and humour, technically the “cobbles” in the picture are sets…. Not cobbles. !-)
I’ll give my response in early August once I have experienced them; if they look like cobbles and feel like cobbles they are cobbles to me 🙂
