La Marie Singletrack. St Ismier, Gresivaudan, French Alps
From St Ismier, climbed to the Tour d'Arces than past the Pierre Grosse (large rock), continue 500 meters.
Quite a good ride today. 47 minutes for the climb (VAM of 940 m/h) which is not too bad. Nice to be feeling on better form due to cycling a bit more.
Singles and company
We'd not been through the rock garden on the single du Champ Bertin since it rained a couple of weeks back (too greasy) but today the approaches were dry which was a good sign.
Corbonne under the rain
With the end of the lockdown we decided to push out a little bit to this classic switchback descent. Unfortunately it started to rain, hard just as we were arriving.
We wanted to push right up the Manival valley to the cabin but due to lack of time stopped about 200 meters short. We returned via the main trail as it was damp.
We decided to cycle to the Climbing Rock to take the technical descent down. It is still pretty tricky for us but getting a bit better on the easier top section.
First Murianette of 2020
I don't usually road bike until the spring but as the weather has been spring like I thought, why not? The Murianette is a shaded climb so not ideal at this time of year but it is relatively easy comp
To the snowline
No ski this weekend so I decided to use a spare hour and a half on Saturday afternoon to ride up and look at the snow conditions on the road to the Col du Coq.
Venon in the cold
I hadn't been out on the bike for some time so took the opportunity of a dry day to ride into work then up the Venon climb.
Combe de Lancey
I crossed Jean Marc Mora on the climb to Lancey, I'd last seen him about 5 years ago.
