    Now you are talking about one of my favourite places anywhere ...
    I think the Gorge is awesome and the road along the rim equally so.  I was even recognising many of the roads you are on.
    Time for a return ... one day.
    Look forward to the next instalment

    Keep me informed whitegloss as i am free from work and usally take a week off in Sept and I want to do the route des Grande Alpes this year  :028: South to north and go around Lac Lemon into Switzerland and back down here via Italy  :062:

    Martymouse it was so good up there sunday,  :152: not to many people even though the holidays are in full swing here, the next video is long but covers the whole route from Aups to Aguines about 40 mins and we met up with other members of the club in Aups who were out on their ancient bikes we only rode this section together as they were just not as quick on those old models, maybe tomorow night the next leg should be ready to post

    Sympathies all round my friend.
    You be careful to, and always expect the unexpected because we all know how easy that comes true.
    Stay safe.  :028:
