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.
Alpino classic rollerski
The climb to the cable car at Alpino seemed feasible. I'd ridden this way a few times and had noted the rough road on Via Arcioni in Gignese but everything else seemed ok.
I'd ridden this road a couple of times on a road bike. The surface is quite good to Frasmatta so I decided to attempt it on rollerskis - although the classic variety.
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.
Lungo il lago
Usual lake roll before a swim. Not too busy for a Sunday but some walkers in the Tresserve car park were not pleased to see a roller skier.
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.
Superloop - Gières Domène Meylan
I'd spotted they'd completed the Gieres to Domene cycle path so was keen to try it out on roller skis. I didn't know how long it would take so started from the ca-rpark at the start of the towpath.
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.
Pre lunch roll
Despite the headwind I was pleased to improve my time on the north segment to 12m48, moving me up about 10 places on Strava.
