Tales of the riverbank
I fancied some flat riding today and decided that a trip up and down the river as far as the town of Pontcharra would fit the bill. I've not ridden the whole of this route before.
Montée de Semnoz
15th climb of the Semnoz is a roller ski competition held in the autumn for the last 15 seasons. It is part of the national Rollerski Challenge series.
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.
Climb via the Lancey road then the Mont short cut with a descent. Hard work up to the cross roads with St Mury but able to maintain a better pace afterwards.
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.
Commute via St Mury Monteymond
Decided to take a long way home via the climb from Lancey to St Mury. The little road via les Chappes is quite busy in the evening, obviously well used by commuters.
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.
Col du Lauteret
For some reason the road was much busier than expected. Arriving at the col du Lauteret there was some kind of event and cars everywhere.
Back to bike
After a lot of roller skiing over previous weeks it was nice to sit on the bike again. It was pretty hot on the climb and quite a few cars. I found out on the descent as the Revel road was closed.
