Mountain Biking (44)
Trip to look at the wrecked VW
JG wanted to check out the wrecked car and get its license plate to see if it was still registered, it is not. It must have been in the woods above the Croix du Trousset for 20 years.
Singles and company
We'd not been through the rock garden on the single du Champ Bertin since it rained a couple of weeks back (too greasy) but today the approaches were dry which was a good sign.
Croix du Trousset singletrack
JG, Matt and I decided to do a short loop via the Chemin de la Pivolle and Croix du Trousset singletracks. The Pivolle is great climbing or descending.
Corbonne under the rain
With the end of the lockdown we decided to push out a little bit to this classic switchback descent. Unfortunately it started to rain, hard just as we were arriving.
Taking advantage of the end of lockdown we rode across town on the bikepath then up the zigzag trail at Montfort to come back along the Coteaux trail.
Côté Borne Evening
Evening ride with JG, Chris and Matthis. The trail was new to them. We trundled over to the Larguit climb then back across the Côté Borne. A bit of a change from the usual singles.
We wanted to push right up the Manival valley to the cabin but due to lack of time stopped about 200 meters short. We returned via the main trail as it was damp.
Speed and Power
Trip within our 1km radius up to the viewpoint then along to the cascade. 10m30 for the climb to the viewpoint, a bit off my PR but 2nd best time I think.
We decided to cycle to the Climbing Rock to take the technical descent down. It is still pretty tricky for us but getting a bit better on the easier top section.
Dominical MTB with tot
We decided to do the same route as last week but with the wind hoped there would be no walkers on it, which was the case.
