High above Lake Annecy – It’s a magnificent and tough climb – and frankly today I suffered near the top.

I am not yet fit or light enough for the July Tour d’Enfer. But at least the injury seems almost OK.

Barry and Martin patiently agreed to ride SLOWLY with me today. They even let several fat guys pass us. When a beautiful girl rode by it was almost too much for them – but they were loyal and slow.

I have had a niggling pain in my left gastrocnemius muscle (calf) for a few weeks, but it wasn’t getting worse or affecting my riding.
