La Marmotte 2008 Preview

La Marmotte (along with l’Etape du Tour) are probably the most famous and two of the most challenging Cyclosportives in France.

I’ll be riding it this Saturday: 174 kilometres and +5,000 metres of ascent (+17,000 feet). Three epic, beautiful, and legendary climbs with the easiest being Alpe d’Huez (seriously).

Cyclotour du Léman – La Montagnarde

The Cyclotour du Léman has several thousand people cycling around Lake Geneva.

There is also a mountain route through the Juras (only about 160 people) and since I circled the lake last year, this year I chose “La Montagnarde.”
