Leave the road bike at home as these hairpins are 100% cobble-stone heaven.
Today I saw more waterfalls, glaciers, hairpins, and tunnels than I have ever seen in a single day.
Two more VERY steep climbs in the Swiss Juras.
A simple there and back route, up the scenic but not too difficult Col des Montets and Col de la Forclaz.
I had hoped to cycle up the Jaunpass during the Tour de Romandie a couple of weeks ago, but the climb was canceled due to snow(!) up high.
Another fantastic day cycling and watching the Tour de Romandie. My plan was to cycle…
I brought my photographer today and he filmed my stage victory: (the secret is to leave 2 hours before the peloton).
Excerpt: I was passed by someone that looked suspiciously like Cadel Evans. So I decided to follow him.
Note, in the video , we spoke in French as I don’t speak Australian.
How does a 32 kilometres bike ride take over 5 hours? Ice, Ice, more ice, snow, hiking, etc.
