Le Salève the Steep Way (video)

My mountain behind home.

I have now reached Col de la Croisette from all four directions in 2009. Although it always takes me the longest to get the courage to climb the super steep north-east side from Le Coin.

Below is the last of about 10 superb hairpins on this painful but fun climb. We watched the 2008 Dauphiné Libéré here.

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

  1. Did you set “fast forward” or are you indeed flying up this mountain … LOL

    I’m planning to try a little climb on the weekend and test how much fitness I’ve lost over the last four months …

  2. This climb looks somehow familiar! And you look great on the video, although if it is truly painful we would have heard some wheezing and moaning…chapeau, indeed!
