I hadn't been out on the bike for some time so took the opportunity of a dry day to ride into work then up the Venon climb. More pleasant than I thought it would be given the cold and even reasonably pleasant on the descent before plunging into the Gieres - Uriage fridge. No records on the climb, a minute and a half off my last ride at this time of year - but that was on a lightweight carbon bike so not too bad either.


Cold but road reasonably dry except some corners under trees.
