Riding Above the Clouds

0




In the fall and winter in the Alps it is often cold, cloudy and dark. But to find the sun, often it’s only a matter of going up high.

So I snuck out the back door and cycled up the mountain behind my house – Le Saleve. And Voila! At about 1,300 metres (~4400 feet) I found the sun.
Beautiful views of the Alps in the distance with Mont Blanc mostly visible.

I also found a little snow in the woods at the top, although the roads were OK. And as always, climbing in the cold is fun, but descending can be a near death experience. Wow were my toes and fingers hurting – time to get my biker booties out.

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