The high Alps passes won’t open for another 6 or 7 months (!) and the snow has now even arrived down low.
But winter doesn’t mean that one can’t continue to cycle uphill.
It’s nice to live at the bottom of a mountain.
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.
