Day 18 – Lunch Ride to Bourg d’Oisans

Today was a light day. Only six of us headed off on a short 35 klm ride which took us along the edge of the mountain below Alpe d’Huez and then a fast run down into Bourg d’Oisans for lunch and then desert at a great little patisserie. Yum yum.  The scenery was breathtaking. Along the way we met a couple out touring on their electric bikes. He was 79 and she was 75. They looked great and were really enjoying riding up to 110 klms a day. After lunch we got to ride back up to Alpe d’Huez in the car with bikes in the van – very civilized!!

I just had to include the pic of our illustrious leader Andrew riding the electric bike around the town on our return.
