The most famous climb in the world of cycling. It's not the longest or the steepest, but it sure takes it's toll on a cyclist. I feel a bit empty now that it's been done. Like the day after Christmas to a child, it's a year before we get it back. That's IF it comes back next year. The Tour changes every year, people. For now, only two more hard climbing stages remain, a time trial, and a promenade through Paris. This year's Tour de France is winding down. I am making the mistake of missing it already, though it is still in action for five more days. Obviously I need therapy.
I dyed fiber on the "rest day" yesterday. There's something beachy about it. The sun, sand and sky. What do the colors look like to you?
To challenge myself today I am plying some overspun singles with gold colored blue jean thread. I know this is a common spinning technique but it is new to me. It's a tough climb, but I'm ready.
