A Challenge – La Grand Bo Cyclosportif June 29thBy Will • May 25th, 2008 • Category: Cycling
OK – due to injuries, crashes, beer and laziness I haven’t signed up for many events.
Next week, I will ride the Montagnard route of the Cycletour du Léman – hopefully with Slogfester. But with the upcoming July Tour d’Enfer, we need to do more. So:
A CHALLENGE to Martin, Barry, Eric (and anyone else).
Come join me on June 29th for La Grand Bo cyclosportif from Le Grand-Bornand. I have registered for the 125 km (78 miles) route with about 2500 metres (+8000 feet) ascent.
It looks like a pretty nice route with 2 big climbs: First the Col de la Croix Fry (photo) from the easier La Clusaz side and a big finish up the Classic North-East side of Col de la Colombiere (where I watched the 2007 Tour de France).
In between are a couple of smaller climbs: Col des Fleuries and Mont Saxonnet.
So, anyone joining me?

Note: The route is roughly correct on map below – but I am guessing on the roads between Dingy and Mont Saxonnet.
