Col de la Forclaz Montmin

A wonderful cycle ride 'Col de la Forclaz' this is my sort of perfect ride. Along the 'flat' lakeshore joining up with a cycle path, so no traffic to watch out for. Cycling through fields newly harvested, bright blue sky, wonderful light on the rocks.

We joined a quiet road and began the trundle up , passing manicured fields, Cows with bells and just beautiful Alpine scenery.

A few sports cars passed us by, and the paragliding vans on their way to the top.

                   But with just Goats and Cows for company this quiet road was Divine. I love this photo!
                                                     They are such quizzical little animals

      The surprise view on the top, those few hairpins are all worth it to admire and take in the vista of Talloires below. And now it's just a freeride all the way back, I declined the paraglide. Take a look behind my bike and you see a green ramp, this is jump off point!!
