Mont Salève in Autumn

1

I haven’t posted a ride in a few weeks, but I’ve been doing lot of local cycling.  In particular, I’ve been enjoying my home mountain, Mont Salève, overlooking Geneva and its lake. Late Autumn is always extra fun here. Lower down is constantly covered in depressing fog/clouds. But if one cycles higher, often it’s gloriously sunny above the clouds.

I’ve written a lot over the years about Mont Salève:

If you follow this blog then you know that I like to take photos, so here are a few favourite photos from the last month, all from Mont Salève. 

Geneva below the clouds, jura mountains to the north

A favourite hairpin on the steepest Le Coin side

A great Mont Blanc view to the south

Fun gravel stretch above sea of clouds – from La Thuile

Lake Annecy below clouds directly behind me in distance

Foggy down low

Sometimes summit is barely above the clouds. Nice sunset.

Lake Geneva below

Another nice sunset

As winter arrives and the high alps passes close, I do a lot less exploring on the bike. But I’m lucky to live at the foot of such an interesting mountain with so many ride options and great views.

Share.

  1. Such an awesome climb Will. There would be few harder rides in the world than the ascent from Le Coin but like you said, the mountain has so many great ways to get to the top.
