Cycling in the French Alps

Looking for a companion or companions for a planned summer trip which
I plan to take place between the 12th of June and the 2nd of July.

Duration would probably be a week or two starting in St, Jean de Maurienne
And taking in some of the famous cols of the Tour de France. Col de la Croix
De Fer and Alpe d'Huez, combined with sightseeing and Gourmandising.

Planning on combining camping with B&Bs and going with two panniers rather
than lightweight bikepacking.

How doable is it on a touring bike?

Recently did the same, from Nice to Maurienne,
packed steel bike, around 50 kilos bike + stuff + food + water.
Bonkin up la Bonnette is pure fun (but yes it tires your muscle). Enjoy

Dont ask

Peter,

In my experience it does not help you mind if you ask questions you probably know the answer to.

Sometimes you need to push a bike to remember the adventure. :0)

Dont plan too much and have a great trip.
