Hairpins on the way down. Andrew thinks the Tour de France comes here sometimes.

    Oh wow…..the scenery and old buildings are just gorgeous! I love that hair pin road – it’d be super fun to ride your bike down (not sure about riding back up though??). I love that photo of Lijey – that’s just the sort of thing Jett would like too 🙂

    When Brooklyn saw the hairpin turns she thought it was a good go cart track. What beautiful things you are all seeing

    • Yeah they were gone in a flash, we were just behind one of the intermediate sprint stages. I got a bit distracted as one of the riders threw his water bottle and I went to get that. Gave the Green Edge riders and cars a big hooray.
