Autumn powder on the Petit Van
Early November snow is not uncommon but always nice to restart the ski season.
Last afterwork before winter time
This was going to be the last afterwork before we are plunged into winter time. I was a bit late starting (18.
Col de la Loze
The Col de la Loze is a new paved road pass in France having only been opened in the spring of 2019. From Brides-les-Bains there is 23.5km of climbing with a total vertical of 1700 meters.
Back to climbing on classic skis.
Bois Francais Classic Rollerski
Classic rollerski drills on the Isere tow path. Speed a bit better compared to last summer, 29 minutes for the return trip as opposed to 31 minutes last year. Got into a good rythm on the way back.
I was using my old flexi skating boots for classic but the inner lining tore and they were getting pretty uncomfortable so I got a pair of Atomic Pro CS boots.
I took a detour on the way home. It was very chilly with a north wind. The road works up to Revel seem to be over and I continued through St Jean le Vieux.
I haven't had time to get out much the last few days so decided to roll a bit afterwork. Headwind going to Grenoble that seemed to drop for the return trip.
Le Venon Lunch ride
First time up this climb this year. It really catches the sun and I didn't fancy climbing it during the heatwave. Very slow too. I know I've not ridden much but my slowest time and over 10% off my PB.
Stopping near a stagnant drainage ditch by the Domene municipal dump was sub optimal. I was immediately attacked by wave after wave of tiger mosquitoes.
