Winter is here
Another dark, foggy day in Geneva, with low cloud cover. Only one thing to do …. get above it into the sun.
I think there is nothing more beautiful than an alpine lake surrounded by alps.
Le Chemin de Saint-Jacques de Compestelle has been followed by pilgrims for over a 1000 years.
What do you do when the cloud cover is at 3000 feet? Cycle up a 4000 foot mountain.
Any second now Col du Galibier will be closed for 7 or 8 months.
If you don’t like super steep, scenic climbs …. look away. I rode this very slowly but very happily.
The plan was to climb the steep and beautiful road from Aigle to Lac de l’Hongrin, proceed to Col des Mosses and loop back via Leysin.
The road up to Col du Cenise is not only quiet and beautiful – it is one of the very steepest climbs I know.
