Alpinebiker- Col du Rousset part 2

OK, the weather is cold, snow everywhere, haven't ridden in over two weeks, and am bored to tears.

Since some of you enjoyed the first film I posted, here is part 2. This is actually en route to the col and shot on the lower roads in early autumn, as the leaves were changing colour, and was actually a fabulous time to ride there. From the 3.30 minute mark we are entering a great natural rock park.

This bit of film is now on my tour website as an example of the type of roads and riding we have over here.

Hope the film helps banish the winter blues for a few minutes.

I lived in Calgary for a number of years and loved the roads through the Rockies and into BC and onto Kelowna.

Hope you can find a way to post some scenic rides from your part of the globe.
