Mountain Biking (9)
Preprandial Isere loop
Preprandial loop to get a bit of air on what should be (and were) some dry trails. Quite a few people around. A bit muggy, better close to the river.
Isere towpath south
A little aperitif ride on the flat along the tow paths of the river. We explored some strange track shown on google earth, a kind of loop.
Col de Marcieu Downhill, Chartreuse, France
A long while since I last came this way but I remembered a relatively easy downhill with a fairly easy climb.
I wanted a flat trip around near where I live just to get some air but not go far or hard as I sprained my ankle on Sunday.
We probably should have ridden against the wind to start with as it was very hard getting home across the Steppes of the Gresivaudan.
This is becoming our regular winter ride but the singles are too wet at the moment until I service my front fork.
Banks of the Isere south
This is a good option if it is damp as the tow paths along the side of the Isere are well drained. You can ride as far as the Grenoble and beyond but pick up a surfaced path at Gieres going south.
Tales of the riverbank
I fancied some flat riding today and decided that a trip up and down the river as far as the town of Pontcharra would fit the bill. I've not ridden the whole of this route before.
Le No Name
From the reservoirs follow the broken tarmac road towards the Tour d'Arces. The track is very steep, around 15%. Continue past the tower and continue to the Pierre Grosse.
