Quite a lot of snow there Guerdi!!

I managed to get a quick trip back to Pau in over the weekend:

The climb to Luz Ardiden - Autumn in the mountains is always special
Image

Looking back down on Luz St Sauveur - still a lot of evidence of the flooding from earlier in the summer

Went out yesterday morning with my old club - this is in the hills above Lourdes

A col is a col is a col - even if it is only 575m :)

Was up in northern MI (Antrim County) this weekend with the wife and I did a couple of rides. The terrain isn't as 'majestic' as what some of you guys post. But it was very pretty, especially with the fall colors. Fall colors are just amazing in northern MI this time of the year and the phone camera does a poor time picking up those colors.

This ride was around Torch Lake. Has a good mix of rollers and small climbs. Rollers probably average 3-6% and there are a few that get up to ~9%.

Lovely spread of colours in that last pic 53x12, the trees here are still mostly green due to all the recent rain we've been having

Few from me

@Makoy......I knew something had been missing from this thread! You were holding out on us! :wink:

@53x12 Those pics remind me of my old stomping grounds in Upstate NY......makes me wish I appreciated the surroundings more when I was there. :beerchug:

Yeah, it does look a little like Upstate NY. However, I think Upstate NY has better climbs as northern MI the 'hills' top out around 1,000-1,500ft. I would love to ride in the Adirondacks sometime. Some cool scenery there.
