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.
Mix of double polling, diagonal stride and pole double kick. Got under an hour for the return trip, which is not bad. Starting to get a bit more slide and at least had good poles this time.
Côté Borne Evening
Evening ride with JG, Chris and Matthis. The trail was new to them. We trundled over to the Larguit climb then back across the Côté Borne. A bit of a change from the usual singles.
We wanted to push right up the Manival valley to the cabin but due to lack of time stopped about 200 meters short. We returned via the main trail as it was damp.
