Within 2 weeks I go to the Vosges in France. We will ride 4 days and climb the Grand Ballon, Petit Ballon, Plaetzerwasel, Colo du Brabant, etc... I will add thes ride to my website. As soon there online, I will post them here.

Normally I will ride the "Giants of the Ardennes" in Belgium. This 160 km ride will come online too.

Excellent. We were there (Vosges) 2 years ago and I was wishing I had the bike. Enjoy the Alsace!

Rob,

I've got a couple - I did the Isle of Wight Randonnee at the beginning of May - very pleasant tour of an island off the South coast of England. 100kms and part of the UK Audax series I'm riding in - here's the url - http://www.cycleisland.co.uk/ . Perhaps a bit more exotic was a ski-marathon in Svalbard, Norway (78deg N) at the end of April - url again - http://www.svalbardturn.no/. I used Ascent to log both - I've been using it for all my rides since August last and find it a great program.

I've tried to add two screen-shots from Ascent - hope they work.
