My 100th hour…

So far, I have gone 1672 km and been on the bike for 105:55 hours.

I am in Digne today, waiting for the tour to come tomorrow, and this town is READY!


most of the shops have a display, or at least a flyer up.
Did you know that every stop on the tour has a cheese associated with it?


The most I have stayed in one town is 2 nights, and I usually get ancy when I don’t ride, but I am making an exception to see the tour and staying in Digne for 3 nights.
Tomorrow, I think I will try to bike up to the Col de L’Orme, which is 734 m and about 9 km from the finish. I think it would be better to see the racers climb than be in the city for the end, struggling through the crowd to see the racers come through.


  1. Wow Heather,

    I’ve got travel envy.
