Monts du Lyonnais, Lyon, France
The Monts du Lyonnais are a small mountain range to the SE of Lyon. The high point is the crêt Malherbe at 946 meters but my objective was the signal de Saint-André at 934 meters.
Preprandial Isere loop
Preprandial loop to get a bit of air on what should be (and were) some dry trails. Quite a few people around. A bit muggy, better close to the river.
Isere towpath south
A little aperitif ride on the flat along the tow paths of the river. We explored some strange track shown on google earth, a kind of loop.
Col de Marcieu Downhill, Chartreuse, France
A long while since I last came this way but I remembered a relatively easy downhill with a fairly easy climb.
I wanted a flat trip around near where I live just to get some air but not go far or hard as I sprained my ankle on Sunday.
We probably should have ridden against the wind to start with as it was very hard getting home across the Steppes of the Gresivaudan.
This is becoming our regular winter ride but the singles are too wet at the moment until I service my front fork.
Banks of the Isere south
This is a good option if it is damp as the tow paths along the side of the Isere are well drained. You can ride as far as the Grenoble and beyond but pick up a surfaced path at Gieres going south.
Tales of the riverbank
I fancied some flat riding today and decided that a trip up and down the river as far as the town of Pontcharra would fit the bill. I've not ridden the whole of this route before.
Climb the combe d'Arpire to the south until to reach the col then follow the short ridge to right (west) to the summit.
