Riding Route Napolean
A three day weekend and the last public holiday of the year offered the perfect opportunity to ride the legedendary Route Napolean. After reading reports of the road in the British motorcycle press for years I was keen to see if the road lived up to the hype. The plan was to ride to Grenoble on the first day taking in the Col de la Forclaz, Col de Montets and Mt Blanc along the way, then to ride Route Napolean (N85) on the second day and finally to ride back to Zurich on the third. Each days ride was around three hundred miles, which is about my comfort limit.
