A little Etape du Tour in November

Postby davidof » Mon Nov 26, 2012 19:38 pm

For the Strava BMC Challenge I decided to ride the 2013 Etape du Tour route... more or less. I made a small video describing the course.

I actually started in Chambery... as I live there and given the short days in November starting in Annecy would have been difficult logistically. As it was I did the descent from the Col de Pres in near dark.

The route isn't that difficult, even the Semnoz climb, which is steep in places, is not that much D+ and over mercifully quickly. If you want to ride an Etape and are not strong this could be the year for you.
