Thinking about the Vercors

Vercors…land of the great cols. Which is where I’m bound shortly.

For the month of June, I’ll be away, on bike (maybe my Breezer, maybe a  Swiss loaner). Couch surfing, warm showerig, cold-feet travel style: no plan, just go and use everyone’s cell phones to figure out the next move.
A fellow named Will thoughtfully mapped out some of his rides: he’s got hillclimb sickness, and wants to do a hundred in a summer (if I read him right).

And I’ll be able to play-ja-rides ‘em, if I can figure out how to download the maps.

Help requested.

  1. I’m assuming your talking about maps on bikemap.net even though the link does not really work, I can see it’s trying to link to that web site. Your options to download/use the maps are 1.download the gpx file into your GPS nav unit (click on gps export icon); 2. download the kml file for Google Earth on your computer/tablet/ipad/iphone/smartphone; 3. print out the maps you want to use, then buy a good map of the area you are traveling to and figure it out the old fashioned way, stop and ask locals, take photos, meet new people, fuck technology. Anything I wrote could be wrong.

  2. Hi Jacquie,

    You’re always welcome in Gap, the week before Vercors’s event to rest and have a good time in french’s Alps. I will drive you on saturday morning or friday before the ride and meeting.

    Best memories. Happy trails for you and Charlie. Fred S

  3. Ooh, sounds exciting! I look forward to reading about your adventures and seeing your photos.

  4. Essaye cela, c’est pas mal comme site… http://www.cycling-challenge.com/jura-mountains/ et également cela les “Virtual Alps” http://www.aukadia.net/alps/
