Road Cycling (11)
Lago di Maggiore
I wanted to ride the H4 road from Brovello but it is unsurfaced just outside Brovello, I was suprised as people have a VAM of 1600 m/h on it, hard on a MTB or gravel bike.
Quick spin in the heat on arrival in Baveno. Climb is pretty stiff and the road uninteresting but rewarded with lake views at Someraro. Lost pump on the descent but went back to find it this evening.
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.
Tour of the lago di Orta, Italy
General DescriptionStarting this route in Pettenasco (it has to start somewhere despite being a loop) head south. There is s small climb up to Orta then along the lake.
Levo - Stresa - Someraro loop
Rode up to Levo. Down to Stresa then returned via the climb to Someraro for a fairly quick and efficient 850 meters of climbing. You can find water at Levo on the main road.
Baveno Levo, Lake Maggiore, Italy
DescriptionClimb from Baveno to Levo and then to the end of the surfaced section of the Via Mottarone.
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.
