Col du Galibier is Closed?By Will • Oct 27th, 2009 • Category: Climbs, Cycling, Favorites
Any second now Col du Galibier will be closed for 7 or 8 months.
An alpine heat wave and Eric noticed that Galibier was still open up until the tunnel and just perhaps we could get higher. So why not?
A perfect day on the biggest climb in France – top to bottom – more than 2000 metres uphill – including Col du Télégraphe. 35 kms long (including a 4km descent) starting in St-Michel-de-Maurienne.
Paradise on a bike:
The Col in sight:
Yep, pretty pleased:
As always, thanks to my much stronger cycling partner Eric for taking some great pics.
