A hilly but not too difficult little loop in the French Juras. Col de Richemond…
This very quiet Jura mountain cycling loop climbs three cols and passes two others. Map, photos, profiles.
If you are a fan of cross-country skiing or seeing huskies pull a sleigh ….. Col de Cuvéry atop Plateau de Retord is the place to visit.
Believe it or not, I have yet to go cycling in 2009. Don’t worry, I haven’t been too lazy.
Riding through Hotonnes we noticed a great old “penny-farthing” bike on display.
I knew the top was just about at the current snow line, so wearing four layers and with a balaclava for the descent I set off.
