A variation on the route today. Decided to try and skate the Chronovélo from Meylan to Grenoble city hall. The Chronovélo are high speed cycle routes where bikes generally have priority over cars.
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.
Back to skating
Back to skating, a little 20km roll in 1h20 at 4m/km average. A tail wind on the way home meant I moved up to 8th place on the Gieres-Domene segment in 10m40. Not bad.
Les 7 Laux
It had snowed about 20cm overnight, the pistes were a bit slow going, maybe a wax issue but generally in very good condition.
Les 7 Laux (Buggy GPS)
A morning whizzing around the pistes of the 7 Laux. Surprised by the lack of half term crowds. Only the Oursiere had queues of about 2-3 minutes.
Windy Sept Laux
We got up early to ski for 3 hours around the 7 Laux pistes. Tot took 2nd overall on the Vallons run on Strava.
All is quiet on New Year's day
Afternoons skiing at les 7 Laux. The parking was rammed and it was difficult to get through the parked cars, we were door handle to door handle in places.
Hooning around the 7 Laux pistes
Weather was forecast as good for the morning with fresh snow moving in during the course of the afternoon, so it looked good for another pre-season trip to the Sept laux.
Stella Greasy Rollerski
It was a grey day. After my run last week I wasn't keen to repeat the experience and have to rest up for a few days. Cycling - too cold and mucky. Nordic skiing? not enough snow.
Back up to the 7 laux, they'd opened the Oursiere lift but we ended up stuck on it for half an hour when it suffered some kind of breakdown. The pisteurs were a bit cagey as to what had happened.
