Hi Pete, was your stay in Lanslebourg during tornanti_3? I might have missed that fact.

Did you try some gravelroads around Mount Cenis?

When I came down to Lanslebourg from Col Cenis it was enough time for a quick ride into Val Bellecombe. The road leaves the D1006 5 km west of Lanslebourg to the North. This road is a real gem
Unfortunately the road ends on a parking area and from there you can hike the rest of the tarmac. No pics from the ride but a video, which I shot 3 km before the turn around.

And some G..le pics.




And then back to the hotel for dinner.

Lanslebourg was....T1, I think.
Looked around mainly towards the east of the lake, Fort Roncia and some little pass to the south-east of it along a narrow dirt road, pretty steep at the end but in good, fairly smooth , condition.
Forgot the name...it's a short name.



Val Bellecombe?

My hotel in Lanslebourg, the Relais des Deux Cols, has a garage for bikers. Yesterday Katie shared the place with two dirty ATVs.

When I came there this evening the company has changed two wonderful Austin Healeys 3000 were already in. I love these old British roadsters.




A group of Brits were driving their roadsters over the Cols. Outside was the rest of the fleet: a Healey 100, a Lotus and a Porsche Cabrio. They came on their wheels from England.




Today I had no exact plan where to go. First idea was to drive some km west and then try to go south into the small valleys and try drive as far as possible.


First try in Bramans was stopped by road works. Next one was not very interesting. Ok, nothing good, let's change plans. I go for the Col du Galibier.





An old Volkswagen came roaring up with a blue oily banner behind him.




Weather is perfect!
