Sean Connery took to these roads in the classic Bond Movie ‘Goldfinger’, and now you too can, as you ride through spectacular scenery and enjoy the breathtaking mountain roads of Switzerland.
It’s summer, but it’s not really summer. Yes, the sun is high and warm, but we simply can’t enjoy it in the way that we want to. Our writers were supposed to be competing in and writing about the legendary Trans Alp mountain bike race this year – but covid travel restrictions put paid to it.
How about a cycling route that takes you from London, through the Surrey and Sussex hills, with the South Downs waiting for you,as you approach historic Chichester.
This is an excellent route for a two day trip into the hills, using Chichester as an overnight halt.
Take a trip with Larisa Chinces, into the beautiful forested hills and mountains in the west of Romania and Transylvania
Mt Ventoux? The legendary climb. For whatever reason everyone kept talking about it. “Have you ridden Mt Ventoux yet? It’s awesome” If you google famous Col’s in France this one always pops up high up on the list. I had to find out why! Could it be even harder than the holy grail of the French Riviera – Col de la Bonette?
