French Alps

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?

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.

One of the great rides from Geneva – 127 kms and about 1700 metres (5600 feet) of climb.

Given that I am now a member of Team Poseur, I was of course more worried about eating than riding. So we stopped for lunch at the Chateau de Clermont for a three course feast – very civilized.

A beautiful but challenging mountain bike route above Gruyere.

And once finished – starving, Barry and I ordered all-you-can-eat authentic alpine soup from the local chalet restaurant. Barry even offered to cook. Delicious!
