We love mountains

My thoughts and experiences cycling, snowboarding and travelling around the world

Road cycling in France

It is hard to beat the road riding in the Alps during the spring. The snowy mountains and lush green valleys make the scenery its most spectacular.

We cycled to Lake Annecy and back from Chamonix, not too far but we detoured to take in a couple of category 2 Tour de France climbs.What always surprises me is how much I enjoy big climbs in the Alps they are normally long and steady and I find a good rhythm and just keep going. Stopping for me is like defeat and makes it harder to start again. A good view at the top and sense of achievement make it worthwhile. 

We stayed at http://www.beausite-talloires.com/en/ while in Talloires, dirt cheap on booking.com and a spectacular setting.

These are a few pictures from the trip.
