Decided to meet the missus and one of her friends in Grenoble for lunch. The idea was to cycle in and come back by car. To add a bit of adventure I took in two alpine cols: the Col du Coq and the Col de Porte. The Col de Porte north side is only around 400 meters of climbing but was a bit of a challenge after the Col du Coq. 1h32 for the Col du Coq, very hard on the last hairpins - must buy new gears (53x39 chainset with a 13x25 rear).


Warm, sunny.
