double way to col du Galibier

Col du Galibier summit, two days, two paths to reach it, one versatile bike

I like versatility, I think it’s important in many fields of life and I look for it also in a bike and what better chance to try it by reaching the same summit through two different roads, two different styles, two different way of life ?

Friday in bikepacking along the Ancienne route du Galibier, saturday along the classic tarmac road
