La Barillette. Dawn Journey! – My Biking Problem



Sure, I’m nonetheless right here. I do know I haven’t posted in a very long time. Sorry. I’m nonetheless using. However for numerous causes this yr it’s been primarily from house.

La Dôle

Wooohoo! A wonderful journey at the hours of darkness freezing chilly to see the dawn with my nice mates Richard and Tim.

An excellent dawn journey requires an unimpeded view in the direction of the dawn. The objective is at all times to reach at the least 10 minutes earlier than the dawn to benefit from the altering sky. It was chilly and windy so we have been closely dressed and all had bike lights prepared for this beautiful 12.7 kilometre climb on a quiet Jura mountain forest highway.

The climb to La Barillette is the third highest paved highway within the Juras. There’s a Swisscom communication tower and a Skyguide aviation radar tower on the prime. It has an unimpeded summit view south: instantly under is Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) and within the distance the Alps. Excellent!

We cheerfully climbed this beautiful highway, chatted somewhat, breathed closely quite a bit. The trouble saved us heat.

There was a powerful Bise (north wind) on the summit and we have been chilly as soon as we stopped pedalling so we have been impatient for the solar to rise. However what an ideal view: Mont Blanc was so clear within the distance, excessive above the clouds. And an orange glow.

After which the solar peeked over the Alps. I want I used to be a greater photographer and knew the right way to absolutely seize the brilliant lighting, and so on. However the first few seconds of the solar was superb. Tim was an ideal mannequin and allowed me to yell at him as he rode posed.

It’s fantastic when a loopy thought works out so properly. Thanks for the good firm. That is my fourth dawn journey with Tim, and my second with Richard. We’ve already begun brainstorming candidate for subsequent yr.

For different dawn rides see:

  1. Cime de la Bonette
  2. Grand Colombier
  3. Mont Ventoux
  4. Mont Salève
  5. Col du Galibier
