Alone we go faster, together we go further

Yes we go to one of my preferred places in the world (yes I do not know all the world  ;D )

Bonnette european highest road (2802 M osl)




And we do the road down with Michelle (she doesn't know); and yes it was written "Road closed" , but ... we (I) decide to go



With the help of my new Czech friends, we decide to cut the hairpin in the grass and stones: and it works perfectly  VCIF_ThumbUp it was only 1 meter deep and 70 m long; but if not, we have 40 kms to do the other way ...

Beginning of Vairata Maira  or Strada dei cannoni was bucolic



Then harder, mud and rocks in the clouds; to be done an other time under sun  ;D







Mitas E07+ was perfect but it is an other subject and surely some report in the right thread soon  VCIF_ThumbUp

After some trouble with the rear wheel rim of my XT I had to cancel the Balkan Tour this year.
Instead of, next week I shall go at Briancon, after repair of my XT is done, and I will do the Papaillon, Assietta, Sommelier and some other gravel routes.
