rain is a weak word for it.
Tke sky was black to the left of the last photo, and from the shape of the water fountain the storm was coming in fast. I zoomed down just in time.

Jesus did it ever rain! Grand Bo cyclo was a gullywasher, but not that cold so ok and a lot less stormy than later on, that's for sure.

Bas- amazing shots of the homeland as always, oh how I love to ride here, you do it justice!

Several small cols in the Voirons yesterday (Plaine-Joux)


Do you descend by the same road you climbed Plaine-Joux?

I went there and thought it was a dead-end? I think with an allround-bike it is possible to climb by the gravel road until Lac de Pormenaz?! That would be incredible. I was hiking there and it gave me some ideas :mrgreen:

Samuel, it's not the same Plaine-Joux. The one you're talking about is above Passy. It's not a col if I recall, and the paved road dead-ends. A good dirt road goes up toward chalet d'Anterne but if I recall lac de Pormenaz is for hikers or MTBs. I have only hiked there.

Col de Plaine-Joux can be climbed from 3 sides (Onnion, Bogève, Villard); I came from Villard and descended to Onnion. Put any of these into www.viamichelin.fr to find it. I have seen it called col de l'Avernaz on some websites but Plaine-Joux is what people use here.

In the old patois joux means forested mountain (same root as Jura), plaine-joux is place where the forest flattens out. Btw Joux-Plane (between Samoens and Morzine) means the same thing, yet another col.

Nice ride the other day here in Japan. I was attempting quite a beast of a ride but had to give up after a thunderstorm saw me taking shelter for almost two hours. I'll be back to attempt it again in the near future.

Rush,
Sure is nice here in Geelong. Pretty cold compared to tropical Philippines.
