    There's about 30 bikes here now, I'm the only Englishman but most speak English
    No you're not. There's 2 more Englishmen here plus a Welsh bloke.

    Alas no Mark. Good to meet up at breakfast. Enjoy your trip. We headed back over Col de la Machine. Stunning. Then bailed out and heading back up towards Dieppe.

    Day off bike yesterday apart from a short trip to get fuel and provisions for room from supermarket, did a bit of a walkabout around village and got some decent pics, all will appear on my Flickr link to the Vercors & Provence album when I get back

    Today off on a round trip to Combe Laval, Col de la Machine and wander back somehow, will make it up as I go

    Update the day later with phone pics

    Beware cowshit on the road down out of the village, the farmer walks the cows along the road.

    Talking of grip, the D531 out of Pont-en-Royans towards Rencurel has been resurfaced in sections with some inky black tarmac, it has no grip in the wet, had the backend step out a couple of times

    They also often resurface with loose clippings in tar at this time of the year - the Gorge de la Bourne towards Villard de Lans seems to be under constant works.

    Yes, I picked the wrong Cols to get back to Grenoble from the southern end of the Col du Rousset. Col de Menée & Col du Prayet were just 45km of gravillons
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.
