The French Alps - Croix de Fer-Télégraphe-Galibier

We met our match with an incredible tour from the Romanche river valley to the Arc river valley and back in the heart of the French Alps. If we had topped it off with a climb up Alpe d'Huez at the end we would have completed the route of the famed French cyclo-sportive event, La Marmotte. 108 miles over the cols Croix de Fer, Télégraphe and Galibier. We completed 103 of those miles and 13,700 feet of climbing in just over nine hours. Not a bad days work and thoroughly exhausting!
