Le Collet d'Allevard back door, France, Alps
Note: this road is closed in the winter months. It is also poorly surfaced before the main Allevard road.This used to be a departmental road but has been abandoned to the elements for a dozen years.
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.
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

Combe de Lancey
I crossed Jean Marc Mora on the climb to Lancey, I'd last seen him about 5 years ago.

Commute via St Mury Monteymond
Decided to take a long way home via the climb from Lancey to St Mury. The little road via les Chappes is quite busy in the evening, obviously well used by commuters.
Col du Lauteret
For some reason the road was much busier than expected. Arriving at the col du Lauteret there was some kind of event and cars everywhere.
Back to bike
After a lot of roller skiing over previous weeks it was nice to sit on the bike again. It was pretty hot on the climb and quite a few cars. I found out on the descent as the Revel road was closed.
