Road Cycling (186)
I'd arranged to ride into work via St Agnes with my neighbour. But he overslept so I tackled the same route as 2 weeks ago, a small 600 meter climb.
col de la Poya
Ride into work via le col de la Poya. Not too bad this morning but I was rolling along. The climb is 7.5km for 550m of V+.
Ste Agnes, Belledonne, France
Climb via Ste Agnes to get a bit of altitude on the road to Grenoble. The climb has some little ramps on it but is mercifully short.
I decided to ride home from the lac du Bourget this afternoon, but via the Relais du Mont du Chat and the col de l'Epine.
First Murianette of 2022
First Murianette of 2022. Since I moved offices I've gone this way less as it is a bit longer so I tend to vary the routes.
Col de Pré to the Cormet de Roselend
Second big col of the spring campaign. This time we drove to Beaufortain as Mike finds the Albertville road uninteresting and very busy. He's not wrong. We too the back road to Arêches.
The Long Climb
I decided to start early 7h20 but could easily have started an hour earlier with the temperatures.
Col du Granier from St Baldof; Chartreuse, France
I'd never done the climb to the Granier via la Petite Montagne before and neither had Mike who lives near the foot of the climb.
Col de Coq up and down
Legs felt really tired but got better going up the hill. I thought about stopping at le Baure and should have listened to myself.
Like old times - only slower!
Felt ok climbing but 58 minutes compared to my PR of 49 ! Losing time all along the climb, a bit disappointing really but I guess I'm not prepared to bury myself as before for a PR.
