Cycling above 3000 metres. Super fun mountain bike ride to the top of an Alp above Val Thorens ski station.
Cycling to the Glacier de Mont-de-Lans and Col du Jandri. The second highest road – paved or unpaved – in Europe. Map, photos, etc.
Cycling to 3131 metres and the summit of Mont Chaberton and its 19th century Fort. The highest I have ever been on a bike. Map, photos, etc.
Cycling to Colle del Sommeiller, at 2993m, one of the highest roads in Europe. Map, photos, profiles, etc.
Part of my 2011 Challenge was to ride above 3000 metres by bike for the first time. Injury delayed this goal, but I hadn’t forgotten. 🙂
