Road Cycling (24)
4 Seigneurs in the fog
A couple of minutes off my March 2022 time but it was probably colder 10C on the climb and 12C in the valley with drizzle. However a PR on the flat section, a phyrric victory :-).
St Cyr Lunch Ride
Just to confirm that it is possible to ride up to St Cyr during the lunch break. My long cut to St Cyr (idea was to find a flatter road) was not a good idea.
Mont Cindre easier route
Trying to find an easier climbing route, this time via St Cyr but there appears to be a better option taking the Collonges road to the first r'about.
Rain stopped play
Idea was to do a small ride into the Mont d'Or but as I climbed the rain started and then got heavier and heavier so I cut my losses and headed down as fast as possible but added a mini climb over the
Mont d'Or Tour
A slight change in the programme with a long ride along the river to Albigny sur Saone then a climb on the main road to Poleymieux au Mont d'Or although the short cut via Curis au Mont d'Or was a bad
Mont Thou by the Route de Mont Thou
It might seem logical climbing Mt Thou via the eponymous road but it is around to the east side of the mountain so not totally convenient.
Finally, 50,000 meters for the year
I wasn't very motivated due to the weather but decided a little tour to break the 50K barrier this year wouldn't hurt.
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.
Col des Aravis, Croix Fry and Marais, Savoie, France
DescriptionA long loop with a lot of vertical covering 4 cols. Starting at Ugine take the cycle path toward Annecy. After about 9km of false flat you cross a bridge over "la Chaise".
Tour of the Miribel Jonage Park, Lyon, France
I thought it would be possible to cycle around the park, there is a cycle route marked (#5) but only for mountain bikes it would seem. I started out along the Canal de Jonage.
