Here’s what I’m putting together for the last weekend in August. The route is based entirely on the Marmotte ride which was a few weeks ago. It’s 174 Km (~110 miles) loop with a couple of hills. Col du Glandon is only a couple Km from Croix de Fer (or was it Galibier, either way…), I’m planning to add it on, so make that 178 Km. It’s a similar game plan to the last French assault, flying into Grenoble to stay for a bank holliday weekend. The only difference this time is I’m gonna rent a little van so I can explore some of the farther regions of the area.
