Another brilliant high old military road ride near the Italian/French border. Deserted, beautiful, challenging. Note, as will be explained below,…
A close up view of cycling the amazing Lacets de Monvrenier. Hairpin Heaven. They will appear in the 2015 Tour de France stage 18. Photo, description, maps, etc.
I find that making myself a map showing all the great climbs in an area is extremely motivating.
Especially since it reminds me all the climbs that I have never done.
I am in the Pyrénées mountains for the first time ever. For the first ride, I cycled the last two big climbs that will be included in stage 8 of the upcoming 2009 Tour de France – Col de Port and Col d’Agnes. Paradise.
