Long Tour de Vuache

Tour de Vuache
The Red Cross Chilly

Martin, Barry, and I are all doing The Big Cheese (Tour de Gruyere) next week. So we decided to do one final big ride in preparation.

One of the great rides from Geneva – 127 kms and about 1700 metres (5600 feet) of climb. This Tour de Vuache (Le Vuache is the mountain south west of Geneva) is on beautiful, quiet, hilly roads – it’s a superb loop.

Given that I am now a member of Team Poseur, I was of course more worried about eating than riding. So we stopped for lunch at the Chateau de Clermont for a three course feast – very civilized.

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


  1. Those sweets look very small (compared to the la Madeleine 1 full cake per person). Well done and good luck for Grand Cheese!
