Late Lunch Ride via la Murianette
Got out of work at 12h40 and it was very warm so didn't fancy riding too fast. Not bad in the shade but the final climb to Revel was an inferno.
St Eynard to the snow
Freezing today I rode as far as the snow although the road was clear to the fort. Cold hands and feet on the climb but warmed up a bit on the descent. St Eynard is certainly steep at the end.
Murianette Loop, Rhone-Alpes, France
Classic lunch loop for local riders and used in an autumn hill climb. The road is largely in the shade, great in high summer, very cold in the late autumn and even icy in the winter.
Fort St Eynard, Chartreuse, France
From the center of Grenoble this climb is a hard 1000 meters + of vertical. According to the ClimbByBike website it is in the top 500 of alpine climbs for difficulty.
