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.
Le Japin - la Pérérée
The ski clubs use the Murianette road for training - but they have a mini bus to collection them at le Pinet. I decided to give it a go descending on foot.
Dog Day Afternoon
Just rolled around concentrating on technique - planting forwards, getting body stacked over skis, flexion/extension. All that jazz.
GPS didn't work for part of the trip so missed about 3km. Going quiet well and better style after a lesson with Valentin from the Ecole de Porte.
Tour of the farms
Very hot again, 29C at midday so I just rolled along to the dyke to the end without trying too hard then turned around and took the road and cycle path through the Innovalley.
It is insanely hot at the moment so I thought an early start, flat and by the water would be, well if not pleasant, supportable. Well by 9.30am it was far too hot for any sport but luckily I was back.
