Really enjoyed our second official rest day. We got the jobs out of the way in the morning, splitting into a mechanics & a laundry group – very satisfying to have bikes & kit spotless (& ready for tomorrow’s predicted rain!) We’ve both also got new brake pads on in preparation for the Alps, having ground ours away on the Pyrenees!
We found an outdoor pool for a cool off & leg stretch. We don’t know if everyone else’s stares were directed at our cycling tans or the fact that Max & Colin were in non-regulation speedos (and thanks to both the lifeguard & 6 year old boy for pointing that out)…
Otherwise it has been constant eating & watching the TdF on the 6 peak stage – very exciting & great to relive the stage and wonder how they possibly go that fast!

The town St Paul Trois Chateaux is lovely & very much ready for the Tour:
The bikes got a rest day too in a wine cellar!
