Mountain Biking (18)
Road Cycling (80)
Snow Shoeing (2)
Usual 4x8 min intervals. Timed it better to finish the intervals on the climb and a part of the descent.
Second interval session of the week, this time over the Murianette. 4x8s work quite well although at Revel you have to continue up the hill for 3 minutes.
St Jean and Belledonne Intervals
First intervals for a long time. I decided to try 4x8. First set was hard but after ok but need a bit of a slope to get the HR up.
Curienne - Mont St Michel
Return from Chambery to get some base miles in. Apart from the climb at Threshold mostly <140bpm on the valley roads. I'd not done the Curienne loop before, it is a favourite for Chambery riders.
Ride to work but staying on the Chartreuse side of the valley to allow a bail out if time was a problem 1h11 for the ride so leaving at 7.30 was in work for 8.40.
Loop home via the Combe de Lancey and co. Adds a few km to the ride home and 600 extra meters of climbing. HR 166bpm for the climb ave, probably due to the heat.
Paradise loop in the heat
Not as quick as May due to the heat, VAM of 900, not bad. The climb has quite a bit of shade, so not bad on a hot day.
Colma di Valpiana, Lake Orta, Italy
This route is really best done in the opposite direction to how I tackled it but I didn't have any information about the road surface and the Climbbybike website has a completely erroneous profile for
A trip to Orta isn't complete without a Coiromonte. Well that is not really true but it is quite an interesting climb and only takes just over an hour.
Col de la Poya
Commute into work via the Col de la Poya. Quieter than 2 weeks ago as people are starting to go on summer holiday. Legs felt heavy on the first part of the climb but it is very steep.
