Another dark, foggy day in Geneva, with low cloud cover. Only one thing to do …. get above it into the sun.

The road up to Col du Cenise is not only quiet and beautiful – it is one of the very steepest climbs I know.
A near perfect day (apart from bonking) Col hunting around the Mountain des Vorès above Col des Saisies.
A really fun, but challenging four Col loop through the French part of Les Portes de Soleil ski region.
A fairly ambitious route primarily on deserted forestry roads near Lake Annecy.
Now this is an interesting way to cycle Col de la Madeleine.
I am not used to being here without skis on. But I was plotting this challenging route last winter while slaloming (!?) the slopes at Flaine ski station.
Two superb and challenging cycling climbs above Beaufort on a perfect day.
Doreen and I are spending the long weekend cycling in the beautiful Le Parc Naturel Régional du Vercors – famous for it’s savage gorges.
The climb to Col des Gliéres is one of a very few big climbs that I think is actually better (more fun!) in the winter.
