Le Vernay from le Cheylas, Belledonne, France
I'd not ridden on the road much of late, bad back in July and lack of time in August.
PR on the climb
Finally broke my PR on the Berger climb: 9m45, 20 seconds quicker than 2013 and I was an a lighter hardtail back then.
We climbed (raced really) with a running group on the climb.
Manival single with Croix Trousset
We'd not been up on the coteaux for a while, since the start of June probably. So a return to our favourite singles. It felt tiring but we climb the Manival trail in record time, Tot 1 minute ahead.
Tour with the neighbours, we were after something dryish after the recent storms and the rocky Manival seemed like a good choice followed by a return on the Croix Trousset (which can be wet).
l'Aulp du Seuil between the rain showers
A quick trip to get some air between the rain storms and see where the snowline is.
After ski ride
A quick MTB through the singles behind the house before the grey weather arrived. A lot of walkers about but we saw no-one (for a change) on our singles except the Croix de Troussait.
Figure of eight
Short lunch ride with JG to see if we could nail the steps of the Berger but still two short runs that are a bit limit on a technical level.
Mud mud glorious mud
Longish tour of the Gresivaudan valley with tot. The idea had been to take gravel trails to avoid the mud.
Trip to look at the wrecked VW
JG wanted to check out the wrecked car and get its license plate to see if it was still registered, it is not. It must have been in the woods above the Croix du Trousset for 20 years.
