Castellane to Digne-les-bains

I rode to Digne-les-bains today, to see the tour come through on Saturday.
There was one nice climb in the beginning, and then it was mostly flat.

The tunnels that they cut into the rocks are really fantastic

and I finally saw my first field of lavender! Digne is the capital of lavender, and they are having a lavender festival in August.

I started getting really excited about seeing the tour when I saw this sign.
