Something for the weekend . . .

Sometimes you need to step back from the noise. I've been thinking about riding challenges for the coming year. One race I'd like to participate in is La Marmotte. Along with a handful of other events (such as Novi Colli in Italy) it's considered one of the hardest cyclosportives on the calander. The race covers about 174 km, but more importantly you have to climb more than 5180 metres over many of the famous TdF peaks . . . the Col du Glandon, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier and the finally Alpe d'Huez. Check out the official film from 2011:
