My first attempt at “The Barillette Challenge”.
Many thanks to La Côte Wheelers cycling club for inviting and welcoming me on their weekly Sunday rain ride.
A very fun day watching the Tour de Romandie. Nice Kit! (??).
Finally, sunny and a little warmer.
The route includes 3 Cols but the detour up Mont d’Or and it’s leg crushing final kilometre is the highlight of this loop through the French and Swiss Jura mountains.
And a video.
Two more VERY steep climbs in the Swiss Juras.
Another fantastic day cycling and watching the Tour de Romandie. My plan was to cycle…
I brought my photographer today and he filmed my stage victory: (the secret is to leave 2 hours before the peloton).
Excerpt: I was passed by someone that looked suspiciously like Cadel Evans. So I decided to follow him.
Note, in the video , we spoke in French as I don’t speak Australian.
