Tour across the Plateau des Petites Roches
A "before work" but more importantly a "before it gets too hot" tour, Almost exactly the same date as last year and same time and power, more or less.
Rollerski Col de la Croix des Adrets, Belledonne, French Alps
I'd been thinking about this climb and the logistics. In the end I drove over the col and left a bike then parked at Tencin and climbed up on classic rollerskis.
A new way to the Col des Ayes for me, Via les Hurtieres (pretty climb with almost no cars) then in the village via the Col de la Croix de Theys and a 2km gravel section to rejoin les Berts and the col
The number of times I've ridden past this little dead end climb I finally decided to see where it goes. In fact the hamlet of le Frènet is quite extensive with some cute chalets etc.
Tour with the neighbours, we were after something dryish after the recent storms and the rocky Manival seemed like a good choice followed by a return on the Croix Trousset (which can be wet).
Col de Pré via Arêches, Beaufortain, French Alps
I was surprised to see that the main road is the one that goes to the lac St Guerin and the climb to the Col de Pré is just a backroad.
Cormet de Roselend Nordic Skiing
Ok it is well known that a number of mountain passes in Europe are suitable for late season nordic skiing or crust skiing as it is sometime called.
First time properly on inline skates for a long time.
A quick 45 minute lunch skate along the Isere cyclepath. Not many people around. Tired legs from yesterday so really just taking it easy.
Sunday Lauteret Feeling
Rebooting my cycling career with another climb across the valley, apart from the danger of being squashed by a speeding driver crossing over the valley it is much closer than the right bank for climbs
