Riding through Hotonnes we noticed a great old “penny-farthing” bike on display.
I knew the top was just about at the current snow line, so wearing four layers and with a balaclava for the descent I set off.
I may have a new hobby! Cycle up a famous mountain. Then rent cross-country skis at the summit, and explore some more.
At its core, this blog is about Col hunting. Generally on a bike, but occasionally on cross-country skis.
Near Geneva many of the best Nordic Ski locations are at the top of interesting cycling climbs.
If you are a fan of cross-country skiing or seeing huskies pull a sleigh ….. Col de Cuvéry atop Plateau de Retord is the place to visit.
Believe it or not, I have yet to go cycling in 2009. Don’t worry, I haven’t been too lazy.
