Road Cycling (109)
le Venon #winteriscoming
The heat wave finally broke with a return to cooler temperatures, so much so I had to wear an undervest and a cycling jacket in the morning.
4 Seigneurs in the fog
A couple of minutes off my March 2022 time but it was probably colder 10C on the climb and 12C in the valley with drizzle. However a PR on the flat section, a phyrric victory :-).
Col des Mouilles in the sun
Last year I was dissapointed to have climbed in 58 minutes. This year, almost the same time to the second and I'm quite pleased with a VAM of 784m.
Tower of the dogs
La Tour des ChiensThe fortified house of Arvilliers, known as the "Tour des Chiens", stands at the foot of Mont Saint-Eynard in the Chartreuse region, at an altitude of 530 m.
Gieres - Venon
Decided to take this nice little climb and loop back around via the Venon descent. 21m44 for the climb, a bit off the 20m03 of last year but not too bad as I'm a bit bushed with work at the moment.
St Mury, Belledonne commute
Commute via St Mury this morning. Slightly less climbing but a bit longer. Climb was good. 3 minutes quicker than June and just 48s off my PR set last year.
Col de la Poya matinal
Got up reasonably early to ride in to work via one of the valley cols.
Passo della Colma from Varello; Piedmont; Italy
Passo della Colma is 8.9 kilometers long for an elevation gain of 490 meters giving an average gradient of 5.1%. The climb starts near the historic town of Varallo, which is worth a detour.
Main climb was pleasant but still finding the very steep ramps hard. Little shake down of the bike after the trip.
Ste Agnes St Mury commute via the Balcons of the Belledonne
A commute via St Mury. It took a bit of discipline to get up and go at 6.45 given the damp and gray skies. VAM of 817 for the climb. A bit slower than last year when I was riding around 880.
