Is that the top of the road that goes up the front of the Saleve? It's a pig for sure that climb.


No, took the 'easy' way up from the La Muraz side. I only tackle Le Coin a few times a year when I'm feeling very stupid. That one's a beast for sure! But nice that there's many routes and having a good HC-ish climb out the backdoor is pretty sweet.

Hammer- wow, hadn't seen that, great shot! It's a sweet view of mt blanc and on down to Annecy from up there, definitely a nice reward for the effort.

Nothing too exciting today other than it was the first day above 8c... thus a ride was in order. Only brought the phone camera though:

Blown motor, paddle still works:

At least 18km on dirt roads and paths, some planned, some not.

Ultyguy, I also went up for the 1st time this year yesterday, by Monnetier. That view, I've seen it a thousand times and I still stop to take it in every time

At least drivers can't claim they didn't see you with a bike that visually loud :D

I think this is my first submission to this thread. Have been enjoying the images from all over the world.

I think that bike currently makes the most appearances of any bike on this forum? Not that I'm complaining, it's a lovely bike and I'm really getting to know it now. I think he's going to have to get a different bike eventually just so we have something new to look at.
