Leysin – Chamonix – Albertville

Hey this morning, myself batman/robin and big dave left our training base of Leysin on Switzerland on our bike towards the Alpe d’Huez triathlon!

We confronted our first big climb about 1 hour into the ride, going up La Forclaz on our way to lunch in Chamonix France!

After a long and cold descent we passed through the border Switzerland/France and I kid you not, as soon as we rode into france, the road quality degrated…

After another short climb and another short descent, we got into Chamonix France, home of the famous Mont Blanc and host of the first ever winter olympics in 1924!

And then had a typical bagette with accesories inside to fuel up for the rest of the ride!
