So, thanks to the ongoing pandemic and subsequent “no fly” policy in the family, I get another cycling adventure this year.
As we will be going to France, I have obviously and as usual dubbed it “Tour de France 2021”.
While I do feel sorry for Paula’s not getting her well deserved sun vacation, I’m also excited at the prospect of having another go at the giants of the French Alps.
I was thinking (again) to plan for the Pyrenees, but I eventually couldn’t withstand the temptation of a remake of part one of my Tour de France 2014.
That was way too short – not the tour, just the first part – to tackle everything that’s in that area.
So for the Tour de France 2021, we’ve rented an apartment in Saint-Jean-de Maurienne, which is located at the base of the…
… Col de la Croix de Fer.
