Nice Eurperg, loving the autumn colours. Great light this time of year but always slippy with the leaves about!

Basilic : your pictures deserve their own thread. Stunning.

Nufenen Pass (Novena). It was a bad idea to ride up there just in shorts. Needless to say that the shower was a pleasure.

That Col de L'arpettaz is a gem! One of the best climbs I've done. Always wondered if it was doable to do the dirt road to the Aravis. Not a good idea basilic?

Thanks Guerdi!
Roselend - I'd always wondered about that road too. The road goes up and down, no problems on the uphills since you have time to pick your trajectory, but on the downhills you get rattled, and the steeper the road, the worse the surface. I had 26mm GB tires (actually 27mm), slashed a sidewall, a good 1.5 cm, and was lucky to have a lezyne boot to fix that. The whole length is 15 km.
I agree Arpettaz is great, secluded, very pretty, I try and go in the fall for the colors. I'd recommend it to people who live in flat lands and are intimidated by the monster climbs, this one is a steady 7-8%, very doable.
