Col de Richemond and Col de Cuvery

A hilly but not too difficult little loop in the French Juras. Col de Richemond and Col de Cuvery are in the same massif as the much tougher and more famous Col de la Biche and Col du Grand Colombier.

"Wish you could have seen the Seattle-area panic shopping yesterday."
