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. It was pretty warm and I ended up with a lot of sweat in my eyes climbing, most unpleasant, I should have washed my eyes out before trying to descend. Bike working well except for upper end gear changes.
It is about a 750 meter climb from the valley and I was on a VAM of 860m/h (52m08). PR is 43m19 back from July 2014 !
Road in good condition, no gravel. Warm but quite a bit of shade on the climb
