Road Cycling (43)
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).
Not feeling great, start of some flu bug.
Foothills of Lake Maggiore (Stresa / Baveno)
Short training route. From Stresa ride down the lake to Beligrate where you take a right turn to the village (one way - Via Novembre). Pass under the railway line to the Via Panorama to Cologna.
Stresa to Mottarone
This is the classic climb in the area to the ski resort of Mottarone from Stresa. From the coast road follow road signs for Mottarone near the Borremeo Palace Hotel.
Col de la Croix de Fer
Got the train to St Jean de Maurienne arriving in the early afternoon. A long 2h30 up to the col with a detour. It is a bit of a drag with hard climbing after St Sorlin.
Col du Galibier, France, North Side
DescriptionThe col du Galibier (2642 meters / 8668 ft) separates the French departments of the Savoie (Northern Alps) from the Hautes-Alpes (Southern Alps).
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.
Le Venon Climb
Relatively steep climb on the south-east side of Grenoble up through the village of le Venon (bar opposite the church).
Col de la Croix de Fer from Bourg d'Oisans
The Haute-Route sportif was crossing over the Glandon so quite a few police around. I cycled the Glandon both ascending and descending.
