Col des Pitons – Cycling (and pushing)

Beautiful day to cycle up Le Saleve Massif behind my house. I took the South-East route via Col du Mont Sion and St Blaise up to Col des Pitons.

The road is still closed well before the Col all the way to Croisette. Unfortunately the snow was very soft and almost impossible to ride on. So I ended up pushing for several kilometres. Nice hike though. :)

At Croisette, I did the last couple of kilometres up to Col de la Croisette. Then descended the super steep way back to home.

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