You gotta start somewhere.
I've been riding like crazy to get ready for our trip. After about 15 phone calls, I was finally able to make reservations at the base of Alpe d'Huez. I can't believe in less than a month we will be riding the toughest mountain on the Tour de France. Ok, maybe I'll be walking up the mountain! We still have a few details to work out but things are coming together for mom and dad's 50th anniversary trip. Oh, and we'll be fitting in a little cycling. Last week we went and rode around the mountains in Chattanooga...nothing like Alpe d'Huez, but you gotta start somewhere.
