Another dark, foggy day in Geneva, with low cloud cover. Only one thing to do …. get above it into the sun.
I think there is nothing more beautiful than an alpine lake surrounded by alps.
Le Chemin de Saint-Jacques de Compestelle has been followed by pilgrims for over a 1000 years.
What do you do when the cloud cover is at 3000 feet? Cycle up a 4000 foot mountain.
Any second now Col du Galibier will be closed for 7 or 8 months.
Not the hardest ride (or easiest) …. but almost the entire route is above 1000 metres and it is beautiful.
If you don’t like super steep, scenic climbs …. look away. I rode this very slowly but very happily.
Today’s goal was to get as quickly as possible (on scenic roads) from Geneva to the Cols that lead into the beautiful Vallée Verte.
The plan was to climb the steep and beautiful road from Aigle to Lac de l’Hongrin, proceed to Col des Mosses and loop back via Leysin.
