I consider this site a photoblog more than anything else. Anyone that rides with me has learned to tolerate frequent stops for photos (and for me to catch my breath).

Year-to-date, I have cycled 91,377 metres (299,800 feet) of vertical ascent.

And despite way too much beer, I have lost some weight.

Along with “L’Etape du Tour” – it is probably the most famous – and one of the the most challenging – Cyclosportive in France.

174 kilometres (108 miles) and 5,000 metres vertical ascent (16,400 feet)!

La Marmotte (along with l’Etape du Tour) are probably the most famous and two of the most challenging Cyclosportives in France.

I’ll be riding it this Saturday: 174 kilometres and +5,000 metres of ascent (+17,000 feet). Three epic, beautiful, and legendary climbs with the easiest being Alpe d’Huez (seriously).

On a last second whim, I jumped in the car to the base of Col du Granier – the first climb in today’s race.
