Curienne - Mont St Michel
Return from Chambery to get some base miles in. Apart from the climb at Threshold mostly <140bpm on the valley roads. I'd not done the Curienne loop before, it is a favourite for Chambery riders.
Isere towpath south
A little aperitif ride on the flat along the tow paths of the river. We explored some strange track shown on google earth, a kind of loop.
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.
Ride to work but staying on the Chartreuse side of the valley to allow a bail out if time was a problem 1h11 for the ride so leaving at 7.30 was in work for 8.40.
Loop home via the Combe de Lancey and co. Adds a few km to the ride home and 600 extra meters of climbing. HR 166bpm for the climb ave, probably due to the heat.
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.
