Marcel Bioud

Marcel was 90 years old. He was one of the first members of our Club (number 12).

Everyone was amazed by his first list of passes. Not only did he send a list of several hundreds of passes for approval but a great number of these passes were on dirt roads and tracks. Mountain bikes did not exist at the time. So Marcel had cobbled together a mountain bike with an old road bike.

It was also Marcel who made up the first list of passes from the Northern Alps, inventing Michelin coordinates.

We were glad to see him again at the Col Luitel for our regional meeting last year
