Col du Glandon/Galibier loop. 101 miles, 13,700ft of climbing. Easy! (not)

The longest day? Maybe! Two flat tires delayed us enough that we barely got back before dark, but we did it. Col du Glandon, Col de Croix de Fer , Telegraphe and the Galibier. This was the big ride we hoped to accomplish, and we did. Was it easy? No. Memorable? Heck yeah! We pushed ourselves to the limit, and had not a few but many people staring at our silly "little" bikes. Do they ride as nice as a Trek Madone? No way. But you can't put a Trek Madone into a suitcase and easily travel with it!
