My first big “comeback” ride. Eric and I took a beautiful alternate route up Mont Salève mainly following trails instead of the road.
A short but stunning (and challenging) loop in the Vaudoise alps with Doreen.
If you’re touring the RGA it’s worth stopping for a day in Beaufort and taking a detour up to Col du Joly.
A challenging but really fun three Col loop, with two of the Cols not really designed for bikes.
You know it’s a difficult loop when Col de Joux Plane is the easy climb.
Back in May, we hiked up to Chalet des Auges above Col des Glières. We were astonished to see a mountain biker there. Upon interrogation we discovered that there is a terrible quality, old road up the back way, starting in Entremont.
A fantastic mountain biking loop starting from Megève ski station.
Every time I have cycled Galibier, I have eyed a nearby old military road full of hairpins.
