Col du Galibier

Merry X-Mas

We are just starting a week cycling in the South Alps. On the way south we drove by the Col du Galibier — easily one of the top three climbs in France.

So we stopped off at the Col du Lauteret to climb the last 9 kms from the South side. A beautiful day and cyclists everywhere. The last kilometre is steep (see 12% photo) but Doreen persevered for her first Galibier. Chapeau. Now off to the South for some big climbs.

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