France – Jour 15 – Part 1… continued
Duvine Loire Valley Cycling Adventure – Day 1 Addendum
Oh dear…. I forgot to tell you if I managed to complete all 51 km of the ride! Thanks to all the faithful readers who pointed this out – you know who you are!
And the good news is… Yay!! Yes I did. Here are the stats….
Distance: 50.79km Elevation: 49.7m
Now, I know this graph looks like there were some serious hills. However, you need to know that it was quite flat – and the stats attest to it. 50m of elevation gain over 50km basically means for every kilometre of riding, we only had to cycle a gradient (on average) of 0.1%!! It doesn’t really get much flatter than that! Although there were hills and dales – as you can see. All in all, a great day on the bike. I think the terrain of the Loire Valley suits me better – I’m at my best on the flat (although you should see me on the downhill!!).
Now… I promise…. the next post will be about dinner…
