Road Cycling (8)
Le Venon Lunch ride
First time up this climb this year. It really catches the sun and I didn't fancy climbing it during the heatwave. Very slow too. I know I've not ridden much but my slowest time and over 10% off my PB.
Post desolation tour
After yesterday's Dauphine finish in terrible conditions I decided to tour the same roads towards the final climb. Quite a strong wind riding out north to the start of the climb.
Murianette - Combe de Lancey
Murianette then over to the Combe de Lancey via the Revel - le Mont backroad. Seriously why make life easy when you can make it hard. The "tres amigos" met over at B.
Superga, Torino, Italy
Direct climb to the Superga from Turin in 25m53, a long way from Thibot Pinot's race winning time of 13m38 and he'd ridden from Milan! The climb is 450 meters at 9% with a couple of ramps en-route.
DescriptionThe Col d'Hurtières is a nice little climb out of the Gresivaudan valley near Tencin.
Via dei Colli Morning Ride
Still suffering from a broken rib due to bike crash so couldn't push it on the flat although largely ok on the hills (different position).
Le Venon Climb
Relatively steep climb on the south-east side of Grenoble up through the village of le Venon (bar opposite the church).
Superga via dei Colli, Turin, Italy
Classic Turin Loop. I did it on a hybrid bike hired from Touringbike which was in good condition but heavier than I'm used to. The climb to the Superga is spectacular with views over Turin.
