A corker of a day today: here I am sitting in hot sun at the Tourist Office at La Chapelle-en-Vercors, with hardly a cloud in the sky, and just a gentle cool breeze. I’ve never ventured up here on the bike in February before, but this was too good a chance to miss. Most of the snow has gone (other than at the ski resort at Col de Rousset), and the roads are dry.
A totally standard route via the village of Rousset and back via Vassieux, but there’s never anything standard about this place, in any weather. But when it’s as clear as today, it’s even more stunning.
