Today it was raining cats and elephants at 5.30am, too bad I had committed to climbing my first Hors Cat mountain.

Off I set first up Col de Leschaux which is similar to the one in twenty ...

For cyclists, the granny gear is the lowest possible gear you have at your disposal. Unless one is climbing something pretty steep it's rarely used. Yesterday and today, it was used often…very often. I’ve decided to name my bike "*****", mostly because that's what I called her numerous times yesterday, and today would be no exception.

We awoke around 8am and I was actually feeling pretty good, although a little stiff in the ...
