Bicycling tour photos and videos

Since this blog's entries are in reverse chronological order (latest first), I'll end with a brief description of the trip.

We spent 16 days riding through the French Alps (with a day each in Switzerland and Italy) and at Mt. Ventoux in Provence, following parts of this year's Tour de France, and crossing many of the famous and very difficult mountain passes that have been in so many previous Tours such as the Col du Galibier.

There were 14 riders, our guide and van driver Alan, and his girlfriend and our cook Dagmar. Many of us met on previous tours in the Alps and Pyrenees led by Alan, and liked each other and the rides, so we keep coming back. Dave, Wendie and I have been on all four, in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2009, and several in the group have been on two or three of the four trips. We are already talking about what to do next - maybe the Dolomites (Italian Alps)....
