Vallée Verte: Cols Moises, Arces, and Feu


When the cold north Bise wind blows, it can be cold but also very clear.

Today’s goal was to get as quickly as possible (on scenic roads) from Geneva to the Cols that lead into the beautiful Vallée Verte.

And then enjoy some nice climbing on three interesting and extremely quiet roads. Lots of views of Lac Léman to the north and snowy mountains to the south.

It had been too long since Martin and I had ridden together, and cycling this fairly challenging route in Eric’s wake was a great way to catch up.
