Day 9- Road to Albertville
Today's ride took us slong the valley with the first major climb of the day to the top of the Col du Cucheron. By this time in the trip the climbs seemed easier. I guess we were expecting the worse every day. The most memorable part of this day was the fabulous lunch in the small village of Raden next to a booming river. We sat down to a four course lunch for three with wine for under 40 euro; pork roast, veggies, salad and desert, along with our standard "pichet" of rose.
The ride from lunch was a bunch of fun rollers where we took advantage of Glen's wheel dragging us into our hotel next to the freeway in Albertville.
