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.
Cycling in the fag end of the year becomes pretty much opportunistic but some unexpected good weather gave me the chance to scratch two itches, a long ride (well long for me) and to visit an unknown s
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.
Between the showers
Felt tired today, still recovering from 'flu so decided to take it easy with a little loop around Mont d'Or. Went to look at the airbase, it is still active with armed soldiers patrolling.
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.
Monts du Lyonnais, Lyon, France
The Monts du Lyonnais are a small mountain range to the SE of Lyon. The high point is the crêt Malherbe at 946 meters but my objective was the signal de Saint-André at 934 meters.
Lyon to Parc Miribel Jonage
Long rollerski (skate style) from Lyon to the Grand Parc Miribel Jonage. The Promenade Parc de Miribel is a bit rough in places with some tree roots and also quite narrow but generally flat.
Col de la Croix de Peccata, Mont Mezenc, Massif Central, France
DescriptionFrom Yssingeaux (there is a free autoroute from Lyon - the N88) you climb 400 meters over 16km but there are some sections of 8%.
Classic hill repeats and no pole exercises
Took advantage of the shallow Charlaix climb to do some classic exercises - including some telemark turns on the descent then did some no pole exercises on the flat with the aim of improving weight tr
Classic rollerskiing on the twopath
Basically working on diagonal stride rhythm and weight transfer and trying to lengthen glide.
