À l'insu de mon plein gré
I really didn't fancy going out, it has been grey and cold for days but at least it wasn't raining. Thankful for small mercys.
l'Alpe d'Huez; Oisans; France
l'alpe d'Huez claims around 50km of pistes of various levels. The main cross country ski area is located betweeni 1900 to 2100 meters so is snow sure, well as snow sure as you get these days.
Run; Berges du Rhône; Lyon
Lunch run from work to change from cycling and a bit more efficient. Aim was to run 5k, need to lengthen run a small bit as it is currently 4.9k down to the end of the cycle path. Pace was 5.
Lachat; Jura; France
DescriptionThe Lachat mountain centre has 46 km of marked and groomed cross-country ski trails for skating and alternative skiing. For beginners and kids there are 2.5 km, 5.
Col du Coq in the fog
As there is little snow locally I decided to get the road bike out and go up the Col du Coq as far as I could before sunset.
Three cols: Col du Verdun, Col de la Crois des Presles, Col du Mont Thou
Not a day I fancied going out much. Decided to revisit the climb of Mont Thou but registered my slowed time of the autumn despite feeling okay. Probably the cold compared to earlier in the year.
Classic rollerskiing, practising transitions
Anther trip along the Berges du Rhone, a bit more interest in rollerskiing, probably because #winteriscoming and people are starting to think of winter sports.
Classic banks of the Rhone
Return to the banks of the Rhone. I've broken a skate pole (roooh !) so stuck with classic but probably a good thing. Work to do on technique - more ankle flex and more leg extension.
Berges du Rhône from the Tête d'Or to the Confluence, Lyon, France
Obvious "urban" rollerski route along the river from the Parc de la Tête d'Or in the center of Lyon to the Confluence. It is approx 10km round trip.
Saturday ride up to Mont Thou where the large radar ball is located. Slopes a bit more acceptable/even on this side of the hill.
