Day7:

The morning-sun tickled the face....as did some of the rain run-off poluted water out of the taps. Dietmar also started a major drying-session of his tent, Werner and Lothar deciding to pitch their own tents from now.
After breaking camp it’s off via Castellane to another highlight of the tour....the spectacular gorges of Grand Canyon du Verdon.
To me the Grand Canyon du Verdon and the Combe Laval turned out the absolute highlights of the whole trip.
There are 3 passes along the way... Col d’Ayen (1032m), Col de l’Olivier (711m) and the Col d’Illoire (964m).
Despite frequent traffic, the lap around the Canyon is without incidents and riding is a pleasure.
