Before his operation, and knowing that he could do nothing before the end of August, Elouan made the most of the mild weather of the past few weeks. I will not talk about the daily outings of 50 (30M) or 70 km (40M). But on 19 May 163 km (100M) with 3577 m (11700ft) D+ (Col des Glières, Col de la Colombière, Col des Aravis, Col de la Croix Fry, Col de Bluffy, for those who know). And on 27 May, 163 km (100M) 4107 m (13500) D+ (with the Revard, the Col de Plainpalais, the Col de Leschaux, the Col de la Forclaz by Montmin, the Semnoz.)

As for the Mistress of Frimousse, there are ups and downs, in spite of her strict diet. She will see the doctor again. My knees haven’t gotten any younger and my sciatica keeps me company.
