I am trying to get myself motivated for climbing in the cold. Actually, the climbing is fun. It’s the descents that can be awful.

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!

This morning it was raining, very windy, and cold. So I sat by the phone waiting for Keith to cancel.

But he is Scottish not Australian, so canceling never crossed his mind.

I decided to rest my tired cycling legs today and hike up Le Saleve with Doreen.

All the great hairpins from Friday’s ride were now surrounded by snow.
