Mooo. Nice septum piercing on the cow there!

Not strictly on the road. From 6 hour MTB race weekend just been. I crashed on my head on the 6th lap and had blisters on the palms of my hands that stopped me from finishing - but I had a fun day and it's a great atmosphere

Jason, looks like a pretty strong group. Was the rider in MTN Qhubeka kit and bike part of the team?

Nice video!
Just out of curiosity, is it common to have group rides on weekdays?

Here in Phoenix, AZ, we have a group ride almost every day of the week. Did one this morning, in fact!!

Bit of MTB from a couple of weeks ago. I've only been on the road bike a couple of times this year :oops:

I am envious of all of you! This morning was supposed to be dry, so I rode up the Salève. Of course a shower came, I had to seek cover. Then after the summit, snow! Must have been from overnight, and then the rain washed the snow off the trees. Very bizarre. About 5 km of this, never descended so slow. Freezing, too.

Wow, huge respect for getting down that in one piece. We had a bit of sunshine for the first time in a while so i headed off it look for some snow:

Heading up the Col du Portalet, it really was stunning:

Image

Found the snow about 4km from the top. Just before this photo, the road was down to one lane because of an avalanche.
Image

Up on the top, the snow was quite deep in places :)

Image

Managed to get the strava KOM which was due to a couple of things:
1. TT bike
2. "slight" tailwind all the way up

(maybe not in that order...)
