Col d’Evires, Col le Parc, and Pas de ChevalBy Will • Mar 3rd, 2009 • Category: Climbs, Cycling
Today my bike GPS was worth its weight in gold.
The plan was to ride a hilly loop in Les Bornes region on the other side of le Salève – the mountain behind home. I wanted to hit three small Cols but I didn’t know the area. But I was able to construct a complicated, winding course on tiny roads and upload it to my GPS.
The result? A great ride on quiet country roads – without getting lost. And three new little Cols to the list: Col d’Evires, Pas de Cheval, and Col le Parc.
Without the GPS – the ride would have been impossible – or on much busier roads.
Update: My wife read this post and laughed at me: “Those Cols are tiny!” Harsh.
