Route des Cretes

Postby Derek-Dex-French » 11 Aug 2013, 19:55

Later this month we are travelling south-ish through France and the Vosges mountains and plan to follow the Route des Cretes which includes a visit to the Grand Ballon. Some more information here:

That looks like a really sweet run. Hopefully one of these days I'll ride it also.

Looks a good run in a pretty area of France Derek. Our trip was meant to be 2 weeks in the Ardeche but we got side tracked.. :D
