I led a gravel clubrun on Sunday taking in parts of the Ridgeway (southern England). Absolute high summer, sunny and hot. After a warm damp June the trailside vegetation is abundant.

Dead of winter, and still simply amazing views. Hate you so much at times like that. :mrgreen:

Last week I did the Route des Grandes Alpes, going from lake Léman to the Mediterranean Sea passing by mythical alpine cols. It was an incredible trip that I can't recommend enough, here are a few pictures:

IanisCercariolo, that's a wonderful adventure for sure! How did you do with the luggage? Did you have a car or something that followed you? I don't see any bags on your bikes.

That looks like an incredible adventure.
Can you tell us something more?
How much km end elevation in total? In how many days did you do it?
Was it bikepacking (can't see any bags) or did you have a 'team car'?
Most beautiful climb?
