Oh! Soleil! 🌞🌞🌞
I'd not ridden this loop over the Col de la Poya since pre-lockdown.
Autumn days on the Venon climb
The climb was harder at the end than I remembered. In general it felt quite easy, not like I was really killing it. It took 32m44s for the complete climb with a VAM of over 900.
Run to the Orionde
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.
First snows of autumn
It had rained all day but the weather said sun from 4pm, it started drying out at 3pm so I gave it an hour or so for the roads to be good.
Descent from Prapoutel, Les 7 Laux, Belledonne, French Alps
We took the bus from Crolles to les 7 Laux for 1 euro, bike included. Not bad value.
Coiremonte / Pisa
This is effectively a rest day. A little ride up to Coiromonte via the hair pins. Riding out of Pettenasco is hard - a series of steep ramps at 15% but by the Coiromonte climb I was warmed up a bit.
Relaxing the legs after the drive over from France. Managed not to miss the short cut turn back to Orta this time.
Col du Rousset South, Belledonne, French Alps
The Col du Rousset is just of the Freydieres climb but the lack of surface on the north side means it is rarely visited by bike. Just two other riders on Strava, both on MTBs.
Tour across the Plateau des Petites Roches
A "before work" but more importantly a "before it gets too hot" tour, Almost exactly the same date as last year and same time and power, more or less.
