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.
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.
I wanted to explore a couple of dead end backroads that I always ride by plus it was a way to break up the climb.
Oh! Soleil! 🌞🌞🌞
I'd not ridden this loop over the Col de la Poya since pre-lockdown.

I don't remember running the Orionde but as it is not far from home and I had other things to do I decided to give it a try. It is a bit steep in most places so it was largely a fast walk.
Due to the lockdown I think this is the first Murianette on road bike this year.

Sunday Lauteret Feeling
Rebooting my cycling career with another climb across the valley, apart from the danger of being squashed by a speeding driver crossing over the valley it is much closer than the right bank for climbs
Quite a good ride today. 47 minutes for the climb (VAM of 940 m/h) which is not too bad. Nice to be feeling on better form due to cycling a bit more.
