Road Cycling (142)
Saturday ride up to Mont Thou where the large radar ball is located. Slopes a bit more acceptable/even on this side of the hill.
Fourvière, Lyon, France
Fourvière is the hill that dominates the center of Lyon to the west on the right bank of the Saône river in the 5th arrondissement of the city.
Mont Cindre, Lyon, France
A trip into the Monts d'Or which I know quite well now up as far as Mont Cindre. Not easy on my 42x24 gear as some of the ramps are pretty steep. The countryside at the gates of the city.
Usual 4x8 min intervals. Timed it better to finish the intervals on the climb and a part of the descent.
Second interval session of the week, this time over the Murianette. 4x8s work quite well although at Revel you have to continue up the hill for 3 minutes.
St Jean and Belledonne Intervals
First intervals for a long time. I decided to try 4x8. First set was hard but after ok but need a bit of a slope to get the HR up.
Curienne - Mont St Michel
Return from Chambery to get some base miles in. Apart from the climb at Threshold mostly <140bpm on the valley roads. I'd not done the Curienne loop before, it is a favourite for Chambery riders.
Another bite of the Madeleine
I parked up at la Grande Croix d'Aiguebelle. A hamlet at the entrance to the Maurienne valley. In the drought the river was dry but the fountain still worked.
Ride to work but staying on the Chartreuse side of the valley to allow a bail out if time was a problem 1h11 for the ride so leaving at 7.30 was in work for 8.40.
Loop home via the Combe de Lancey and co. Adds a few km to the ride home and 600 extra meters of climbing. HR 166bpm for the climb ave, probably due to the heat.
