Wanna go ride in August, but not booked any flights yet and considering just driving out to miss the whole drama of bags and packing bike etc. more room for spares etc.
Plus the car is somewhere safer than a tent to leave bikes if we go for dinner/few beers/lots of beers.
Is it a huge ball ache driving to chamonix? I live in the lakes, so the fuel cost+ferry+tolls is gonna be a lot but is it gonna be a lot more than train+flight+transfer?
