Other than that session behind the Asda in Swindon?
I was in Chamonix for a week with friends from school, but the weather had been very poor. On the single worst day one of the four of us simply didn't ride, and the other two decided to bail as soon as we got off at the midstation at Le Tour. This was understandable - there was zero visibility and howling wind and the lift should not have been open at all. So I set off alone up the chairlift to 2,000m, and was quite nervous as you couldn't see a thing. It was blowing a gale up top but I pushed my bike up the Col de Balme regardless, and onwards to the Croix de Fer, over the border into Switzerland. As I got up towards about 2,300m (I think), the clouds began to part and you could briefly see all the way up the Rhone Valley to Martigny and even possibly Verbier, but the weather was still very unstable. When I got to the ridge at the top I found myself in this sunny bowl about a mile across, but you could see the storm over the valley above Emosson and Vallorcine. The clouds were all moving really fast like flames and the light kept going from blinding to pitch black very quickly! The Col de Balme is normally a very well-travelled, civilised part of the Alps, but on this day it felt absolutely mental. Anyway then the sun came out and there was weird yellow evening light and I began the descent to Trient and got down just as it got dark. Now when it's pissing rain I still get out and ride, as who knows what I'll see.
