Road Cycling (6)
Cormet d'Arêches, French Alpes, Savoie
The Cormet d'Arêches are how Grand Tour cols used to be: nasty, long and brutish and the cherry on the cake, the top 6 to 7km are unsurfaced.
Col du Coq with too many Kilos
I'd not road cycled since before the lockdown and it was hard. Far too many kilos to carry and no real zip up the hills. Had to use my x32 far too often on the climb.
Vercors Tour, French Alps
A serious tour along the cycle path to St Gervais then up and over the Rencurel pass before dropping down to take the Gorges de Bourne but as you can see from the GPS map they were closed.
Mottarone Loop, Lake Maggiore, Italy
50km loop linking the lakes Orta and Maggiore via the summit of the Mottarone mountain. The Orta lake road is u quite busy as is the road from Lake Maggiore to Gravellone Toce.
Col de la Madeleine Loop
A very pleasant loop just over the mythic 100km barrier for Stravassholes! :-) First big alpine col loop for me a long time for me. The Madeleine is a hors category category climb.
Grenoble the long way: Col du Coq/Col de Porte North
Decided to meet the missus and one of her friends in Grenoble for lunch. The idea was to cycle in and come back by car.
