Murianette then over to the Combe de Lancey via the Revel - le Mont backroad. Seriously why make life easy when you can make it hard. The "tres amigos" met over at B.'s house at St Ismier, I rode across for the kms. Then down to Domene and up the famous Murianette climb. Once we reached Revel we decided we wanted a bit more so I suggests the quiet le Mont road, very steep in places, in a south facing bowl so really warm too, I must say I suffered at the end but a final effort brought me back in contention with the boys.
Warm but not hot. Warm enough to be in shirt sleeves, or not. Quite a bit of spring gravel around.
