Col de Cuvery and Col de RichemondBy Will • Feb 17th, 2008 • Category: Climbs, Cycling, Juras
A great Jura Mountain loop over two passes with Martin. A bit ambitious for February, but the recent dry weather meant the roads were in pretty good condition
Riding through Hotonnes we noticed a great old “penny-farthing” bike on display. The little sign said that it was a giant model of an 1870 bicycle realized for the passage of stage 19 of the 2002 Tour de France.
We returned via the very pleasant Col de Richemond. This climb is next to the more famous Jura giants Col de la Biche and Col du Grand Colombier – but both were closed – we’ll have to wait a few months.
