Hautacam In January...

Located just 15kms from Chez Passet, The "Hautacam" (Hate-A-Cam as Di calls it!) is an Hors Categorie climb used in the Tour de France and one which I like to climb as the views and road undulations make it a great ride...

 It's a fun climb, it takes you through little villages perched on the hlllside and its generally quiet.

The weather finally changed and I felt the need to “get out” and see how the mountains look – fantastic was the answer to that…

We’ve had a lot of snow up high (wind and rain around Chez Passet), so I wasn't too sure how the road would be but to my surprise it was clear and fun to descend with the high snow banks on either side of me.

I’m trying to get some early season kilometers in as my first CycloSportive is in 2 weeks time and I haven’t been out much so I’ll see what I can do before the season starts.

Hautacam in January – gotta like that…
