12 Sep / Mont Blanc preparations in full swing.
Mont Blanc from the Med
I have been in France for a few weeks getting ready to attempt Mont Blanc from the Adriatic Sea. The cycling is fantastic- and the town of Sallanches where I am staying is very beautiful.
The bike split of Mont Blanc from the Med begins in Genoa, Italy and ends 172 miles and +13,000 ft higher near Courmayeur at the foot of the Italian side of the mountain. From there I will climb to the summit and back down the French side. Here is a detailed route on Strava for reference. I’ll be posting more about my training, like this recent ride with 16,000ft climbing:
More to follow soon…
