Video: Col des Glières from the Steep East Side

4

A fantastic winter loop up to Col des Glières. In December we did this loop in the opposite direction – details here. But, during winter, doing the ultra steep East side makes a little more sense as it is not cleared as well as the west side – and it’s easier riding uphill on ice than descending.

Anyway, I brought along a domestique to make a little video of the ride. ;)

On the map below, ignore the little loop around Roche-sur-Foron. I forgot feet warmers and we had to search for a local bike shop to get some.

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.

    I’m going to have to give Eric a hard time about that fat finger. Ha! ;)
