Road Cycling (18)
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.
Le Paradis Loop
A small loop starting at Gieres, climbing to Uriage then taking a small but steep climb of some 350 meters at 10% after dog and cat home (SPA) with some steeper ramps in places.
St Enyard 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 Enyard is certainly steep at the end.
Alpe Rossombolmo, lago di Maggiore, Italy
This fearsome climb starts from the village of Ornavasso just north of Gravellone-Toce.
Mottarone Loop, Lake Maggiore, Italy
50km loop linking the lakes Orta and Maggiore via the summit of the Mottarone mountain. The Orta lake road is u quite busy as is the road from Lake Maggiore to Gravellone Toce.
San Salvatore, Lake Maggiore, Italy
I took this climb by error. From Lesa it is a hard 5.75km at 9% covering around 550 vertical meters. The road ends at a monastery and there is a very good trattoria with lake views.
Monte Rosso, Lake Maggiore, Italy
There are over 40 hairpins on the 450 meter/8% climb to Monte Rosso. This has the advantage that the climb is never too steep. The road on the last km to the restaurant is not in great condition.
Miazzinna and Alpe Pala Hill Climb, Lake Magiorre, Italy
Start on the round-about at the end of the Via Renco on the NW outskirts of Verbania. Climb to the Alpine village of Miazinna, Alpe Pala and the war memorial.
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).
Not feeling great, start of some flu bug.
