A very steep, deserted forest road in the Swiss Jura mountains.
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).
