Day 4- Rencurel---Old Tour de France Route
Day four was an "official" day off. But, did we relax, NO WAY! We decided to ride the suggested "day off" ride that was part of the 2000 TDF. This was a spectacular ride up the rock walled roads and into the pine trees. The roads with "etched" with tour rider names in white paint, "Jan Ulrich, Tom Booden, etc...". The climb topped out at the famous Calvaire de Valchevriere--a memorial to those who died serving the "Resistance". The views were spectacular.
