The Dreaded Bise


36.8 km

I started my ride today at full speed. I couldn’t believe how effortlessly and quickly I was going. Then it hit me, I had the dreaded Bise at my back.

Generally the wind around Geneva comes from the west. But occassionally the wind comes from the north. This north wind is almost always much colder and much stronger that the prevailing wind. It’s know as “La Bise.”

How strong was it today? Well I started a 15 minute climb straight into the teeth of La Bise and finished this “15 minute” climb in 20 minutes.

Total distance: 821.5 km Total Ascent: 9,777 metres Total Calories: 29,527
