  1. I did that pass last year but going the other direction (From Nice up to Turin) we lucked out and a very kind Italian with a pick up offered us a lift through the tunnel so we managed to avoid that trecherous gravel road! Good luck with the rest of your cycle Andrew 🙂

  2. That descent looks incredible, if the view up on the other side was the same I don’t think I’d have made it. How do you manage to slog all the way up those mountains? While I’m on your blog, I’d like to mention http://www.blueonabike.com Everyone take a look Neil Baker has ridden, completely self supported from the tip of South America to Alaska for his chosen charity. A fantastic achievement, you all will agree, if you can, make a donation on his just giving page. Sorry for hi-jacking your blog for that little message.

  3. Good luck with the spokes. Enjoy the ride down you have earned this pleasure by doing the climb.

What do you think?
