A few days ago, I snuck in a final big climb before the snow arrived…
A truly beautiful mountain bike cycling climb to Col de Balme, surrounded by views of snowy peaks and a glacier or two. Map, photos, etc.
A tough but stunning, partly unpaved route to Col de la Madeleine via the amazing Lacets (hairpins) de Montvernier, and the challenging Col du Chaussy.
Enjoying Paris by bike, visiting all the typical tourist sites. Map and photos.
A perfect day, I decided to visit Col du Galibier one last time before it closes until next June – it should snow there tomorrow. Photos, profile, map
Very challenging, super scenic, five col mountain bike loop up to Les Grandes Platières (2480m). With amazing views of Mont Blanc at the summit.
Challenging, alternate unpaved mountain bike route to Grand Colombier via Col de Charbemènes.
Cycling above 3000 metres. Super fun mountain bike ride to the top of an Alp above Val Thorens ski station.
Superb 22 kilometre mountian bike climb to Col du Jovet – 2404 metres – from Bozel. Quiet, high, and beautiful.
