My mountain behind home.
This is just a wonderful route. All the roads are well surfaced, deserted, scenic, and often uphill. Although, I need to write to the local mayors to install some missing Col signs.
It’s that time of year where cyclists all over the world break out their silly kit. Today, I had my full Marmotte kit (fuzzy red Alpine rodents all over my clothes).
– my wife hates it ;(.
A perfect day.
An early easter ride with Eric and the wives.
My three faithful companions wanted to help me with my 100 Col challenge – and today’s route included five (see map)!
Le Semnoz is featured in my favorite cycling movie: “Le Vélo de Ghislain Lambert.”
A scenic and challenging loop around and over the Jura mountains from Geneva.
Although Mont Revard is only a little over 1500 metres high, the climb starts beside Lac du Bourget at just 250 metres – making for a big climb.
I have already cycled Col de la Croix Fry in 2009, I had told Eric so many times what a great early spring climb it is – that he wanted to have a look.
