Yes, the Dauphinée will climb Le Salève up the super steep route from Collonge-Sous-Salève just behind my house.

It is rated category one but features 4 kilometres averaging 12% – with a full kilometre averaging 13%. This is steep!

There is a Grande Randonnée (GR) hiking route along the top of La Vuache and someone had recently asked me if it was do-able by bike.

Today – with Eric and Jason – the idea was to find out.

I spend a lot of time searching for climbs.

But it’s worth remembering how much fun relaxed, social rides can be with friends.

We almost had enough for a peleton today as Eric joined Martin, Barry, and I for the first time . Being Flemish, not surprisingly he’s a very good cyclist.

I have always avoided any sort of formal cycling training. I just have little desire to do the sort of regimented sessions that I read about in training books.

Luckily, around Geneva the hilly roads are perfect for interval training.
