No ski this weekend so I decided to use a spare hour and a half on Saturday afternoon to ride up and look at the snow conditions on the road to the Col du Coq. The climb wasn't too bad until the steep ramp after le Baure, thankfully that was nearly the end of the road. I've not been up this road for a couple of years - I think the 1000 meters vertical was just too hard in the end.


Relatively mild (for mid-winter) until the tunnel then in the shade and not so hot. Dry. Ok descending.
