Le Bourg d'Oisans has lots of cycling stuff. 

Tube machine!

We pre-drove the first couple turns so Cindy could get a feel for the grade. The message was "we can do it" and "it does moderate after the fist bit". But the first bit is steep. I have entirely the wrong gearing for alp riding but figured I could make it work for a couple days. Their are half cooked reasons for not changing them besides just lazy-ness and time constraints... and I'll try to remind myself of that on those first half dozen switchbacks. 

We are staying at les deux alp and glacier skiing is open. I'm tempted. There are cows with bells on, and we feel the elevation at nearly twice Calgary, especially after our last week at low elevation.
