The day started out pretty normal with clouds threatening and the odd drop of rain. Our goal today was to head over into France once again via the col de Balme, on the border of France and Switzerland. Well me made it, but not quite as planned... After leaving the Col de la Forclaz we headed towards the hamlet of le Peuty, but somewhere along the …

The ride across the border was punctuated by glimpses of Mont Blanc still wearing its winter coat and head and shoulders above everything around. Once in Chamonix, we had a panini for lunch, pulled out our guidebook and began the infamous trek. It felt mostly like we were walking along the road and through local parks until we were about half way ...
