Mont Thou Classic Rollerskiing via the Route du Génie
Return to Mont Thou to see if is better on classic rollerskis. Well at least no need to stop to catch breath on the steep sections.
Mont Thou Skating via the Route du Génie
An alternative route to Mont Thou in the Lyonnais Mont d'Or range. It seemed ok on paper, apart from a steep section of 1km before the turn onto the route du Genie and so it proved.
Tour of Lake Annecy, left bank; Northern Alps; France
Geraldine woke at 6.30; we’d planned to get up an hour earlier. After a cool shower we were on our way at 7.15. Not a moment too soon. It was already warm and humid.
Madonna del Sasso, Orta, Italy
Rollerski climb to the Madonna del Sasso (Madonna of the cliff). A church positioned above a 250 rock wall.
Mont Thou on Rollerski
I wondered what the Route du Mont Thou would be like rollerskiing. It is possible to climb all the way to Mont Thou by turning right at the Hameau du Mont Thou but the road is very steep.
Ste Agnes St Mury commute via the Balcons of the Belledonne
A commute via St Mury. It took a bit of discipline to get up and go at 6.45 given the damp and gray skies. VAM of 817 for the climb. A bit slower than last year when I was riding around 880.
Petites roches via St Bernard
Been quite a while since I've cycled this way. Surprisingly slow. 1m04 for the climb to St Hilaire, record is 49 minutes (vam of 800m/h).
Vallouise; Ecrins; Hautes-Alpes; France
Vallouise offers 35km of cross-country ski trails which follow the valleys’ rivers and torrents.
After hours Oratory
A short afterwork climb to the Oratory of the Charmant Som.
Mont Narcel, Monts d'Or, Lyon
A ride to Mont Narcel, one of the Monts d'Or. For a change I went by St Romain au Mont d'Or and the Thou road with its 8 hairpins. 17 minutes for the climb to the village on 7.
