Our host rolled up 5 minutes after we called and showed us where to park (not in the garage that came with the house for some unspecified reason) and then opened up the palace that was to be our home for 2 days. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a TV in a mezzanine/mansard loft type thing and a huge sitting/dining/kitchen area. There is of course always a downside..no washing machine and no internet and no aircon which was a shame as the weather was humid+++ and watching the TdF on the TV in the top storey was a bit sweaty.

|Sigh...a sign for erratic boulders..a must see, if they stood still long eough|
Sunday was ride to the chapel of the Madonna del Ghisallo patron saint of cyclists, the planned visit to the cycling museum was to happen the next day when we could be sure of bicycle security.
