Swiss Alps

Another great climb up to an Alpine hydro-electric dam/lake.

26.6 kilometres and 1680 metres (5500 feet) of ascent – this is a gigantic and beautiful ride well worth the visit.

The Chamonix tourist office gave me a map with several signed mountain bike routes on it.

I chose the “difficult” red route to Le Tour with a plan to then climb towards Col de Balme as high as possible.

I take LOTS of photos while cycling. And occasionally I even take a good photo or two.

But when riding in Cyclosportives or along famous climbs there are often professional photographers along the route. Need help posing?

Juras

Mont Tendre is the highest point in the Swiss Jura mountains at 1,679 metres.

It’s another of those great, steep, deserted Jura roads climbing through the woods – with Alps views at the top.
