    Bourg St Maurice

    June 11, 2017 in France ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Well here we are right in the middle of the French Alps surrounded by some of the biggest cycling climbs around. The day started well, I was up early and decided to go outside with the iPad and catch-up. Good in theory, ended up being locked out. Automatic door only lets you out at that time day. Luckily, one of the guides had gone for a run and let me in!!! Today was the start of riding the big hills and the weather was just magic clear skies and 30 degrees.There are a lot poms in the group and they did what they do best, complaining about how hot it was. Poor pasty things. Day started well, we all got stuck at the first set of traffic lights just 10 metres from the hotel! It was one of those that needed weight to activate it, a couple of bikes were just not heavy enough. Sorted we set of on a beautiful gentle climb towards Beaufort. 10 kms out a flat tire, bugger, went from in the first group to dead last then used too much energy trying to catch back up.John had waited in Beaufort and we commenced the climb. It was a beautiful climb and certainly challenging. Being Sunday there were an incredible amount of motor bikes on the climb, one lot of three decided to do monos past us, interesting. Stopped at Lac Roselend for lunch then up and over the top for an amazing and very technical decent down to our hotel. Very nice today, yesterday's was a bit fawlty towers. Tomorrow is a bigger climb. Need my rest.Read more

    Hotel Autentic in Bourg-St. Maurice

    May 20 in France ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Nachdem wir bei trockenem Wetter von unserem Hotel in Brig gestartet sind hat uns der Regen leider schnell eingeholt 😡😔 es wurde, zumindest mir, auch schnell kalt, da half dann nach 4 Std. Fahrt auch die Skiunterwäsche und der Fleecepulli nichts mehr. Aber was soll‘s einmal auf jeder Tour muss es Biker wohl erwischen - wir lassen uns die Laune nicht verregnen 😊😜
    Sind dann bei Regen und Nebel den Col de la Forclaz gefahren. Die Aussicht trotz Nebel war atemberaubend!
    Als wir dann endlich durchgefroren (Wolfi nun doch auch) unser Hotel erreichten hat es sich gelohnt: ein toller Anblick! Mit Pool (30 Grad) und wunderschön gelegen. Für 88€ mit Frühstück kann man nicht meckern. Leider ohne Restaurant aber in 20 Minuten waren wir in der Ortschaft wo wir unsere Bäuche verwöhnt haben und der Spaziergang tat uns echt gut.
