Arriving in Mexico – Lake Chapala
We landed in Guadalajara just before dusk in the early evening (18.5º C, sunny skies, sigh), after a comfortable five hour flight from Edmonton with one stop at Mexico City.

A CLIMB TO LOVE: PASSO SAN BOLDO
The year was 1969. The race was an international amateur stage race in Italy, run under the name ‘Giro del Piave’. There were 220 participants at the start including myself. I was only 18 years old at the time and this was my first BIG race with the seniors (amateurs, as I was still a junior racer). During the second stage we went over a climb so memorable that I promised myself to return and visit this place again. I kept my promise and came back some 40 years after.

The Alps Less Riden
Anyone with even a passing interest in road cycling would be familiar with the French Alps. The sweeping vistas, the huge climbs, the legendary battles that have taken place on those slopes. But of course the Alps aren’t just a feature of France – they extend across eight countries in Western Europe, with amazing cycling climbs found throughout.
