I'm sure velotel will post a better ride report than mine soon, but here's my contribution

After getting shut down by the weather for a few weekends, velotel and I finally rode together yesterday. We re-routed on the fly while driving along the autoroute from our original destination -- the hills above Echirolles -- to a climb that I had only been up in the comfort of my car. The road is pretty steep (just under 10% average) and to access that climb you have to do another mini climb up the Col de Cossey. I had never been up this road at this time of year, and it's actually quite beautiful on a bike. After taking a few pictures at the dead end

we turned around and crossed over a short but fun dirt/mud/snow section, and then did a little exploring on roads that snaked along the sides of hillsides.
The descent was... well I'll let the video do the talking

is it possible to post youtube video inline?

Wow. A ride to remember.

I hope you enjoyed a warm meal afterwards as you reflected on the satisfaction of your day's adventure.

Thanks for sharing!

Did you blow through a stop sign at about 3:25? :no:

haha, sweet video though! Makes me want to get out there.

nope, that's for the road coming in from the right. Thanks for the concern though :)

You two are frustrated videographers who use cycling as an excuse to make the rest of us jealous! :cool:

Nice work...

Jeez, if that's what you call a job, you must have one heckuva job. Oh wait, isn't that what a certain president said about some guy when the hurricane ripped through New Orleans. I'll change that; you must have one highly desirable job.
