I started to run into snow and ice on long stretches shaded from the sun. My tires were slipping and I considered turning around – but I promised myself I would descend the crazy parts by foot.


Perhaps the best three days of (challenging) cycling I have ever done. Even a lousy photographer like me couldn’t help but take some great pictures – it’s paradise here.

Col du Galibier via Col du Telegraphe is the biggest climb in France in terms of altitude gain. I can get to the base of Telegraphe from home in an hour forty-five – as it starts right next to an autoroute – sweet.
