I managed to sneak a bike ride into the family holiday once again, and made it to Alpe d'Huez.
I was tired and hungry at the start and got a headache half way up. the whole experience wasn't very pleasant, and I think I left a lung on the last hairpin.
Although this was shorter than Ventoux it felt a whole lot more aggressive, and I have no idea how anyone (Matt) can do this, and Galibier, and the rest of the stage, all in a day. Definitely not rubbish.
Anyway, it took me 65 minutes dead, needless to say the views were incredible, as was the relief when I stopped.
See y'all on the 16th...
