Signal de Bisanne

A tough ride in the Beaufortain mountains from Villard-sur-Doron to Signal de Bisanne. Higher, longer and steeper than Alpe d’Huez!

Col des Saisies

A hilly and initially cold ride from Beaufort to Col des Saisies and on to Flumet, returning via a steep climb to Cohennoz and then Col de la Forclaz


Another long-standing goal of mine was achieved on this amazing ride from Le Bourg d’Oisans along the spectacular D219 balcony road to Villard notre Dame, then via Col du Solude to Col d’Ornon

Col des Prés

A bike ride in the Bauges mountains from Saint-Jean-d’Arvey climbing Col de Plainpalais and Col des Prés, with wonderful views of mountains and meadows.

Col de la Rochette

Today I got to meet some of my fellow members of the Club des Cent Cols which I joined last year. The occasion was a bike ride in the Jura mountains featuring Col de la Lèbe and the Col de la Rochette
