Trip to look at the wrecked VW
JG wanted to check out the wrecked car and get its license plate to see if it was still registered, it is not. It must have been in the woods above the Croix du Trousset for 20 years.
The gps didn't start properly but time was around 3m50/km.
Singles and company
We'd not been through the rock garden on the single du Champ Bertin since it rained a couple of weeks back (too greasy) but today the approaches were dry which was a good sign.
A quick tour along the lake to check out conditions. It was pretty hot after lunch with a bit of a breeze from the north.
Col du Petit-Saint-Bernard
The Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo is the only mountain pass that links the Italian Aoste valley from the Tarentaise.
20m44 for the leg south, just 1 second off my PB - I'll have to try harder next time. There was a little bit of a tailwind mind. That's a pace of 3m26 / km; which is okay really.
Croix du Trousset singletrack
JG, Matt and I decided to do a short loop via the Chemin de la Pivolle and Croix du Trousset singletracks. The Pivolle is great climbing or descending.
Corbonne under the rain
With the end of the lockdown we decided to push out a little bit to this classic switchback descent. Unfortunately it started to rain, hard just as we were arriving.
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.
Taking advantage of the end of lockdown we rode across town on the bikepath then up the zigzag trail at Montfort to come back along the Coteaux trail.
