Road Cycling (7)
San Primo, Lake Como, Italy
The route stars in Bellagio on the classic Ghisallo climb. The first few km are around 14% gradient. As the road flattens a bit (everything is relative) take a right turn to San Primo.
Climbing a bit better today. Also front tire stayed inflated. Climbed with a 34x24 on the steep segments, which is better. Good descent to St Nazaire with no traffic.
Summer bike shakedown
Spent a few hours trying to sought out my tubeless tires for the summer.
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.
Alpi Ompio, Verbania, Italy
DescriptionSouth east facing but quite a bit of shade as you climb through the woods. The climb to Alpe Ompio is 7km at 8% giving 550meters total from the village of Bieno.
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.
Plateau des Petites Roches via St Bernard
DescriptionClimb through the historic village of Celliers (chateau Carre etc) or via la Terrace, both are equally difficult.
Mont Blanc via the Three Mont Blancs route
Luc called me on Friday morning. Did I fancy climbing to Mont Blanc on Saturday? Interesting question.
