How to descend in style!

When it was 35C on the Friday and the chaps from Cyclefit all told us to dress for a winter ride, we weren't sure if they were serious initially. However being reminded that if it was 15C in Pau, it would only be 4-5C at the top of the Tourmalet and wet too. They recommended we get hold of some latex gloves as easy-to-carry extra protection for cold hands on the descent. The only thing the local Spar had was pink marigolds, which I sported with pride as I sped down the far side of the Tourmalet. You may just be able to tell in the photo!
