As there is little snow locally I decided to get the road bike out and go up the Col du Coq as far as I could before sunset. It was sunny initially but as I started to climb low cloud blew in and visibility was poor - luckily I had brought my lights for the ride down. However it was not cold, very pleasant in fact. The climb felt quite easy, I was on a 34x25 gear to work strength a bit - out of the saddle on the ramps. At the Baure village the road was blocked for winter but no snow on the road beyond so I continued, finally stopping 1700 meters from the col as the shadows started to fall. On the ride down the fog had dropped a bit but was pretty thick needing care in case pedestrians were crossing on the numerous paths.
Warm and foggy until the turn with Col du Coq
