78th consecutive month cycling up Alpe d’Huez

I am alway relieved to get the December ride up Alpe d’Huez out of the way.

Usually because of the long season I am tired and the climb is my last milestone for the year. Moreover its usually pretty cold. Going up is fine, despite the extra weight of an additional layer and a rucksack full of extra clothing,  its the coming down that is unpleasant. Despite the extra clothing – and no skin showing – you still freeze your butt off.
