Winter is here. Currently it’s cold with far more snow than usual.

Don’t worry, yes, I’ve been on the bike a little bit, but when it gets too icy, it just makes no sense. Even the thickest tires are no match for sheet ice.

Although a little powder snow is fun:

But cross-country ski conditions are absolutely fantastic. I bought a season pass for the Rhône-Alps region and hope to get my money’s worth.

When some sun arrives for a few consecutive days, giving the roads a chance to clear, I’ll bike up a col or two. But at the moment, I am enjoying the lung-shattering fun of Cross-Country Skiing in the Alps.

Merry Christmas

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