Road Cycling (43)
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.
Summer bike shakedown
Spent a few hours trying to sought out my tubeless tires for the summer.
Tour of the lago di Orta, Italy
General DescriptionStarting this route in Pettenasco (it has to start somewhere despite being a loop) head south. There is s small climb up to Orta then along the lake.
Quarna Sopra, Lake Orta, Italy
General DescriptionThe climb to Quarna Sotto is 400 meters of vertical over 5km giving an average gradient of 8%. The switchbacks at the end are steeper.
Coiromonte from Lake Orta, Italy
General DescriptionThe climb is split into two sections. From the lake at Pettenasco to Pratolungo it is around 6% over 2.5km for 150 meters of climbing.
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 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.
4 Seigneurs Loop via Uriage
The 4S (seigneurs) summit is a classic for road cyclists and MTBers in the area, short, sharp but quiet roads with a great view.
Alpe Quaggione from Montebuglio, Lake Maggiore, Italy
General DescriptionThe climb is 14% over 5km for 700 meters of climbing. The climb through the village of Montebuglio is very steep but afterwards settles down to 12-13% with a series of steep ramps.
