Riding La Marmotte GranFondo backwards with a twist


Late September is great here in the Oisans and we invited a couple of More Than 21 Bends friends over for some end of season cycling. We set off at 8:20 to ride La Marmotte route backwards with a slight little twist. First off was the Col du Lautaret and Col du Galibier followed by a descent of the Col du Telegraphe. After a spot of lunch we tackled the monster Col du Mollard and then finally the Col de la Croix de Fer and back to Bourg.

We finally arrived home at 7:20PM having ridden completed over 4000 metres of climbing and 172KM. Not for the unfit or the beginner but a great day out.
