Re: Facebook touring groups.

I find the irony amusing that in a forum dedicated to Alpine touring, somewhere that requires more riding through the Alps is considered by many to be too far :lol: Ooh - there a forums where such a comment might trigger a flame-war :wink: Of course around here it's each to their own - as long as ev...

Re: Facebook touring groups.

"Yeah - but it was great while it lasted." Hey, it's not quite dead yet!! [-X Apart from that, I agree with everything in this thread so far. This forum has never had a huge volume of traffic, even at its peak, but I think that's what's kept the quality of the posts (and the posters!) high...

Re: Grand Alps - Early June

There's a another option from Susa to Briancon - go to Bardonecchia and turn left to go over Col de l'Echelle - SP216 becoming D1 joining D944G to Val des Pres. It's paved but a little bit bumpy but much more interesting than the Montgenevre road.

No, actually Dangerousroads.org came to the rescue - it was Kaiserjagerstrasse (kaiser is close to konig!! :D )

Where was that road?!

Some time ago someone (I don't think it was one of the "regulars") posted some pictures and a reference to a spectacular narrow road somewhere between Lake Garda and the Dolomites. I know it's not much to go on, but can anyone help me to identify what road/where it was? ISTR Karza either k...

Re: maps for garmin

It does work, so I can get back to route planning as soon as I've got the hang of Basecamp.... Not quite as intuitive as MyRoute-app, but with Ali's "How to" from an old thread and a bit of googling, I'm up and running and now know how many days I need to get to AR2018. Thanks Raven!! =D>

Re: maps for garmin

It will if it enables me to use Basecamp without owning a Garmin device!
I will have a play later.

Cheers!

Re: Alps in July

That's when I usually tour (2018 will be no exception) - I've always found it easy to find places right up until around 4pm on the same day using Booking.com. That's just for me on my own - you don't say how big your group is and I can't comment on how that would affect things. Have a good trip and ...
