Well done punk. Looks great. French mountains would actually be worth a trip again and again. But unfortunately i rarely get out of Switzerland. But ok, it's not that bad here either

Thanks. The swiss landscape is just amazing, and I think it's where I had the steepest climbs :shock: .

I recognised the location - I visited the exact same place, Monschau, in 2010 (not me in photo).

Northwest Italy. You might have heard of it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colle_delle_Finestre
Of course it must be ridden on a road bike or it doesn't count. :)

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:
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?
Indeed it was incredible !
I know, Alpine tours are the best :D

Here's a few photos from mine, early this month.
Self supported (sleeping in B&Bs), 1300km, 27km of climbing, 11 days plus one rest day in the middle.
Mont Ventoux, Galibier, Iseran, Grindelwald and a few more.
