Col de la Joux Verte


A stunning ride from Morzine up to Avoriaz with – a much stronger – Barry.

It is a much nicer route up via Lac Montriond – up the wooded valley along crazy hairpins. The way down is much more open and a little less interesting.

I felt weak as a kitten today – frustrating. I have tried to avoid any formal training plan – and just enjoy myself. But I am feeling a little burned out – perhaps never fully recovering from the two big rides a couple weeks back. I need to start training a little smarter with better warm-ups, more easy recovery rides, and the occasional interval session. Tomorrow – no biking!

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.
