Alps cycling report (abridged)

A few words on a long weekend in the Alps…



Flew into Geneva for four days solo riding in the Alps.

Went up several cols: Roselend, Iseran, Vars, Agnes, Izoard, Sarenne – and drove over Galibier and Croix de Fer (very busy with motorists due to the closure of the Lautaret). Visited two ski stations: Alp D’Huez and Chamrousse.

It was hot and hilly (climbed almost 16,000m and put 14,997kJ through the PowerTap). Managed to climb Alp D’Huez in 58:30 which was pleasing given how bad my fitness is this year.

It is amazing to ride uphill for hours at a time – and the descending is even better! Highly recommended to anyone who has the chance to go…
