Mountain Biking (23)
Road Cycling (15)
Snow Shoeing (2)
I wanted to check my bike after straightening the derailleur hangar which I bent in a crash a month ago. All ok apart from the new chain doesn't run on the old cassette.
Race to Fourvière against totster
Race against tot on foot to the Fourvière, not entirely conclusive as we took the wrong route which made it slightly easier by bike.
Caluire-et-Cuire is one of the hills of Lyon to the NW of the city center. La Croix Rousse district is at the southern end of the hill. The summit of the hill is 275 meters.
Col du St Saturnin, Bauges, France
Col du Saint SaturninA quiet col close to Chambery. The col is marked by the Croix de Bon SecoursOn the North Side, start at Chambery le Haut. Climb is 1.5km long with the main section around 7%.
Via Rhona La Balme-les-Grottes to Lyon, France
I saw that Amberieu was 20 minutes by train from Lyon which meant I could cycle a chunk of the Via Rhona, the long distance cycle path that goes from Geneva to the Mediterranean sea.
Fourviere ,Caluire et Cuire, Rhone
Took the Montee de Choulans from Perrache, hard at first but it went by a flat I wanted to look at. Pleasant on top of Fourviere, 4C cooler. Descent always sporty due to poor 1970s braking.
Fourviere and Caluire et Cuire
First time out in shorts this season. Rode up to the Fourviere where there was a clear view of Lyon and pre-alps and even snowy alps just beyond.
Lyon hill repeats
Hill repeats largely at threshold, took in the climb to la Croix Rousse although need to find a better way down.
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.
Fourviere via St Just
I decided to attack the Fourviere hill from a different angle. Ride down the Rhone to the Confluence and then climb via la Mulatiere (the mule?) along a balcony road called the Chemin de la Fontaines.
