Roller Skiing (98)
Space Cake Trip in the Lyon Tunnel Mode Doux
A couple of tours around Lyon's Parc de la Tête d'Or but then it was getting busy so decided to test the new cycle path which has been redeveloped along the Rhone before crossing the Pont de Lattre de
Back to business
Back to rollerskiing. Skating for a change after a lot of classic before the non-season.
Eine kleine Nacht Rollerski
As it is dark at 5pm now I thought I'd try a bit of night skiing around the park as I saw there was street lighting.
Classic rollerskiing, practising transitions
Anther trip along the Berges du Rhone, a bit more interest in rollerskiing, probably because #winteriscoming and people are starting to think of winter sports.
Classic banks of the Rhone
Return to the banks of the Rhone. I've broken a skate pole (roooh !) so stuck with classic but probably a good thing. Work to do on technique - more ankle flex and more leg extension.
Berges du Rhône from the Tête d'Or to the Confluence, Lyon, France
Obvious "urban" rollerski route along the river from the Parc de la Tête d'Or in the center of Lyon to the Confluence. It is approx 10km round trip.
Lyon to Parc Miribel Jonage
Long rollerski (skate style) from Lyon to the Grand Parc Miribel Jonage. The Promenade Parc de Miribel is a bit rough in places with some tree roots and also quite narrow but generally flat.
Classic hill repeats and no pole exercises
Took advantage of the shallow Charlaix climb to do some classic exercises - including some telemark turns on the descent then did some no pole exercises on the flat with the aim of improving weight tr
Classic rollerskiing on the twopath
Basically working on diagonal stride rhythm and weight transfer and trying to lengthen glide.
Made it onto the strava leader boards thanks to skate skis. Can probably go a bit higher but there are some fast guys in Lyon. More fun this week as I took a more varied route around.
