  1.  

    @936adl is up for Round Two after the Shorpshire Hills Cogal. If you are able, join him in France for what is sure to be another incredible day devoted to the bike.

    What more needs to be said about this mountain. One of the truly iconic climbs of the greatest race on earth, all 264V metres of it. Along the way we’ll also get to bag the Col du Telegraphe for good measure.

    After meeting in Saint Jean de Maurienne we’ll use  the roll along the valley road as a nice warm up before  we reach Saint Jean de Maurienne, the town at the base of the climb. From there, the only way is up.  Our first target will be the Col du Telegraph at a mere 1566m, and from there it’s on to Valloire and the start of the climb proper. See you at the top……

    As the saying goes,what goes up must come down, and we’ll retrace our steps back to Saint Jean de Maurienne for well earned Malted Recovery Beverage Consumption.

With Keepers Tour: Cobbled Classics 2012 stitched up and in the history books, the challenge of documenting the trip became immediately obvious; how do you take the myriad impressions, experiences, and perspectives and put them down in a meaningful way – let alone in a way that can somehow be digested. Surely, to document even just the Keeper...

Rule 9-Fair-weather riding is a luxury reserved for Sunday afternoons and wide boulevards. Those who ride in foul weather – be it cold, wet, or inordinately hot – are members of a special club of riders who, on the morning of a big ride, pull back the curtain to check the weather and, upon seeing rain falling from the skies, allow a wry smile t...

  1. @Gianni : “De zwarte van Brakel” litteraly : the Black one from Brakel , cause he always has the deep dark 5 o’clock stubble »
