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. The descent was through heavy traffic.


Lots of traffic, they'd closed the roads to cars in the Chartreuse. The North side of the Col du Coq has a lot of gravel on the descent, probably dangerous on a bike. Pleasant weather but a lot of pollen in the air.
