Century Sunday – Long VuacheBy Will • Jun 3rd, 2007 • Category: Climbs, Cycling
Wow, second century of my life and second in a week.
A while back, I gave Martin a map and guide-book of signed Haute Savoie cycling routes and today he suggested the closest to Geneva – Route 17. “It’s 25 hilly kms just to get to this fine route,” I said gently. “I know the route but usually drive to the start.”
“No problem, should be great” he replied. I soon learned why as Martin was STRONG today. Well, 137 kms later I am knackered! An absolutely great, hilly ride in nearby France along beautiful quiet roads. We both struggled at times but laughed a lot. With all the climbing, this ride took longer than last weeks 176 km lake loop – yikes.
My wife asked me the highlight of the ride. “when we walked into the Kebab restaurant at the end – without a doubt”
Below, it’s easy to see where we briefly got lost.
