I live in the flat lands of Cambridgeshire so I have no idea if my legs can do "climbing" or not. They can do "forwards" reasonably well due to commuting 25-30 miles a day by bike for the last 18 months.
I have discovered the tour is run for Exodus by some people who used to work for them. Their website has additional information about stuff to bring and what to expect at:
Looking forward to the trip.
Dalleechee, OK Jenny71, I suspect a red herring if you are in the Alps right now - probably doing drills on Alpe d'huez and going to put the rest of us to shame in the sag wagon:-)
Look forward to licking our respective wounds together after a few climbs folks. Thanks for the link on marmot - will check it out.
Really getting excited about this now!
I am thinking warm gloves/overshoes/arm and leg warmers and a coat are gonna be essential.
Is everyone else packing for cold/bad weather?
Daleechee - has this trip been run at this time of year before? What was the weather like "on the ground" and at altitude?
Ignore my last question Daleechee! I thought you were involved in the organisation (didn't read the post properly). I now realise you just started the thread :-)
Any Exodus peeps on here???
Hey Joe, to answer your question, I am packing cycling arm and leg covers. I have been checking the temp, and see it is going to be relatively sunny the first few days, but suspect we will get a variety of temperatures. It is the mountains, so I suspect cool nights and cool mornings.
I am just a traveller on this one - no stress of organizing!
