A few weeks ago while cycling Col de la Madeleine and Lachat I could see into the next valley and noticed some amazing hairpins up high. I vowed to take a closer look.
I take LOTS of photos while cycling. And occasionally I even take a good photo or two.
But when riding in Cyclosportives or along famous climbs there are often professional photographers along the route. Need help posing?
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.
