col-de-la-bonnette-summit-view What seems like a lifetime of climbing is finally realised in a heart beat. The summit of any mountain is worth double the pain it takes to get there. Pulse slowly returns from race to canter. Vision clearing with the clouds to reveal life and everything we ride for. The moment lasts but a few seconds but instantly it surrounds you forever.
