Col du Granier from St Baldof; Chartreuse, France
I'd never done the climb to the Granier via la Petite Montagne before and neither had Mike who lives near the foot of the climb.
Etoile de Saisies 21k
Final compet. of the season. Basically a tour of the black piste (Justine Braisaz) at les Saisies.
Les Sybelles; Maurienne; French Alps
General DescriptionLes Sybelles in the French Maurienne links six villages: St Colomban des Villards, Les Bottières, La Toussuire, Saint-Jean-d’Arves, Saint-Sorlin-d’Arves and Le Corbier.
Afternoon tour with Tot to the Canaple. We were looking for something safe (it was risk 3 > 1600m) and this fits the bill.
This is becoming our go-to ride. Just technical enough to provide a challenge with lines etc but all rideable at the moment with no real risk of a nasty off.
Lazy Sunday Afternoon Ride
A little tour in the warm, maybe too warm, autumn sunshine.
Manival single with Croix Trousset
We'd not been up on the coteaux for a while, since the start of June probably. So a return to our favourite singles. It felt tiring but we climb the Manival trail in record time, Tot 1 minute ahead.
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.
Tour with the neighbours, we were after something dryish after the recent storms and the rocky Manival seemed like a good choice followed by a return on the Croix Trousset (which can be wet).
After ski ride
A quick MTB through the singles behind the house before the grey weather arrived. A lot of walkers about but we saw no-one (for a change) on our singles except the Croix de Troussait.
