Bike Fridays do the Alps and Jura mountains

Hi Guys,

We got our Bike Fridays early this year and we had done a short tour in Thailand in Jan. We are doing a 2 week trip in the French Alps and the Jura mountains. Started on 4th Aug, and finishing on 18th. It's been a dream trip till now.

Journal is here.

Nice pics.

Looks like a fun trip, especially if you like pedaling up hill, and the resulting downhill, too.
I'd have to replace my wife's brake pads everyday!

Nice! I bought a 2012 pocket rocket this year. Those BFs are incredible machines. Mine feels just like a racing bike.
