On Location rides

This morning I ticked off the last of the On Location rides. I loved every single one! These sessions are not easy for anyone thinking they may be a scenic spin through the countryside, some very testing workouts. I absolutely love the local bits of history and especially anything relating to food. Being a lover of riding in the mountains of France these sessions tick all the boxes. Thanks Mike Cotty. Anymore in the pipeline?
Also where does one get the plain black Wahoo kit?

Love them.

I did Luberon last night as an “easy” option for the day…
3x3 + 1x4:30 of MAP on an “easy” ride :smiley:

I’ve recently ‘discovered’ these and am really liking them too. They motivate planning a summer vacation to France :fr:

I don’t think @michael.cotty would mind being send for another few of these. :wink:

Agreed! The last 4 1/2 min interval was tough.

Sign me up! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’m not a good decision maker.
Never trust me with “We need to keep the efforts low today”.

Hi All,

The On Location Rides with Mike Cotty are some of my favorites on SYSTM.
Mike always brings along interesting information about the areas.
We definitely need have more of these available. Vive! Tour de Cotty

Echo everyone’s sentiments. These are a fantastic addition to an ever increasing library and they are also bloody tough!

Being a British expat now in the US I might not get the chance to ride the fantastic, legendary climbs but doing them through SYSTM makes me feel like I am almost there.

Can’t wait for more of these.

Can any one tell me which rides are Provence and which are Pyrenees?

I’m sure I could do it on a map, but figured someone here would know off hand. I just like to do rides in blocks… like 2 holidays in the pain cave!

Litor, Gavarnie, Baronnies and Lac de Cap de Long are Pyrenees.

(It says it in the description of the session. )

I’m about to finish my week in the Pyrenees and will move to Provence next week :wink:

A thought: there must be great routes in the Andes, in Africa, in Canada, in Australia, in New Zealand, in Leadville. The world is wide!

On location suggestion: Old Fall River Road from Estes Park, CO to the Rocky Mountain National Park visitor center. Local to the minions in CO and a wonderful ride!

I tried my first location ride on Sunday - Lac de Cap de Long.

I’d like to complain about it being far too realistic… I punctured! How the heck do you puncture on a turbo with a bike that hasn’t left the pain cave for months, if not years?!?

I enjoyed the section of the ride I did get to see though!
