I've ridden the Hilly Hundred Weekend for years and this year, at age 73, I decided to do a little training in the French Alps. I rode L'Alpe d'Huez and Col du Glandon. Needless to say, the Tour de France guys are a bit faster than I am. It was fun, for sure – but without the people, food, music and all the rest of the Hilly's attractions. See you in October.
