The altitude, it did read higher at first but drops down and settles after a minute.

Where's that then - I'm (probably) down that way (Italy / French Alps) next year, and that'd be one to tick off the list!

I'm looking at doing the www.centopassi.com route - not part of their event, but just hi jacking all their planning work

Mark, its the Col de Somellier near Bardonechia in Italy. Its the site of the Stella Alpina rally. Its a dead end trail but dead easy to do, nothing difficult but very scenic. Well worth the ride up. Gets very busy at weekends so midweek is better.

Enjoy

I think there was a higher one in the Pyrenees but AFAIK it has now been closed to vehicles, so yes it is.

Nice to see they lit the tower in the right colour for you

Have you been throwing mud at your bike? How did the swing arm stay so clean?

If you get to Britain in the next day or two you'll be wanting your waterproofs, at least it'll clean your bike.

Bike was really much dirty before but I got rain during 300km while driving to Paris, so it was a bit cleaner on the front
