I was looking to see of it was possible to climb a tiny “road” up to Col de la Charmette.
I had been thinking about this project, ever since Philippe, Xavier, and I watched the sunrise up Mont Ventoux
A very, very fun day cycling up Col de Joux Plane and watching the Dauphiné. Photo: Vino reaches for newspaper for descent.
Two absolutely stunning climbs – more examples that there are so many rides better than the more famous Verbier in this region.
In the colder months in Geneva it is often dark, grey, and overcast. Miserable. But often if you cycle high enough, you can get above the clouds, into glorious sunshine.
I meet a lot of lovely cows while riding a bike
The shortest but perhaps most fun “cyclosportive” I have ever done.
A gigantic climb that I’d long dreamed of cycling.
