Alpe Camasca from Lake Orta
Nice climb this morning but got lost in Quarno Sopra before finding the road to Camasca - very hard in places, it must be around 18-20% max, chain was making a nasty noise.
Rode to the end of the road at Alpe Busca this year. There is no real view from the top - a small shrine with a fountain of very pleasant water, just mountains.
Bournemouth to Sandbanks
The promenade to Sandbanks from Bournemouth is much smoother than towards Hengistbury and would be ok on normal rollerskates with just 3 rough sections - one between Alum Chine and Branksome and anoth
Col de Marcieu Downhill, Chartreuse, France
A long while since I last came this way but I remembered a relatively easy downhill with a fairly easy climb.
Alpe Loccia, Lake Orta, Italy
Back to see if I could get a bit further up the road. In the end I made it to the top section although didn't have time to ride over to the village, next time. There is a segment of 17% over 0.5km.
Alpe Busca / Inuggio - Lake Orta, Italy
The idea was to take the road above Luzzogno towards Alpe Busca as far as it is surfaced. But I was unsure of the route above Luzzogno so took the Inuggio road instead.
Col des Ayes
A little tour with tot to get some air. The road was completely pisted by the passage of the hundreds of skiers, snow shoers, sledgers and every other kind of engine.
Afterwork: Pravouta by night
A little afterwork. I started around 16h30 from the car park at 1190 meters but it was no doubt possible to tour from much lower down, from the main road to St Pancrasse at 1000 meters even.
Alpe Loccia - Lake Orta - Italy
I'd spotted the Alpe Loccia while searching for new routes around lake Orta in Italy. According to the mountain bikers it is an uber steep climb with sections over 20%.
Seriously, I'd vowed not to come back after last year but here I was, struggling up the first killer wall out of Monte Buglio cheered on by the usual assortment of deranged Italian cani.
