Another bite of the Madeleine
I parked up at la Grande Croix d'Aiguebelle. A hamlet at the entrance to the Maurienne valley. In the drought the river was dry but the fountain still worked.
Paradise loop in the heat
Not as quick as May due to the heat, VAM of 900, not bad. The climb has quite a bit of shade, so not bad on a hot day.
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.
Colma di Valpiana, Lake Orta, Italy
This route is really best done in the opposite direction to how I tackled it but I didn't have any information about the road surface and the Climbbybike website has a completely erroneous profile for
A trip to Orta isn't complete without a Coiromonte. Well that is not really true but it is quite an interesting climb and only takes just over an hour.
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.
Supposed to be an easy session but ended up a lot in zone 3/4 anyway.
Col de la Poya
Commute into work via the Col de la Poya. Quieter than 2 weeks ago as people are starting to go on summer holiday. Legs felt heavy on the first part of the climb but it is very steep.
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
X Skate - On Hengistbury Head
Cross skate down the promenade from Bournemouth to Hengistbury head. I didn't ski all the way to the head on the track due to lack of time and it was getting hot by 8am, next time.
