So I came up with a new idea.... well actually an old idea for me. Just get on the bike and start exploring. We headed west from Martigny to a town called Saxon to a climb that went to nowhere. It wasn't famous and will never be featured in a grand tour... but it was exactly what we wanted. In the hour and a half ...
