Mesh bike gear on the Col de l'Espigoulier

Col de l'Eespigoulier

Checking out my mesh riding kit in the heatwave in Marseille. Great when moving but mesh doesn’t stop me heating up when stopped. On safety and protection, there’s a balance between comfort and safety (you aren’t riding safely if you are overheated) but the protection from a full riding suit is undeniable. Maintaining hydration and structuring rest are also important.
But of course I took the opportunity for a bit of sharpening up riding skills on the Col de l’Espigoulier (723 m.) - it’s always good to remember that some curves tighten as you ride through...
