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.
Three cols: Col du Verdun, Col de la Crois des Presles, Col du Mont Thou
Not a day I fancied going out much. Decided to revisit the climb of Mont Thou but registered my slowed time of the autumn despite feeling okay. Probably the cold compared to earlier in the year.
Mont Narcel, Monts d'Or, Lyon
A ride to Mont Narcel, one of the Monts d'Or. For a change I went by St Romain au Mont d'Or and the Thou road with its 8 hairpins. 17 minutes for the climb to the village on 7.
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 de la Croix de Peccata, Mont Mezenc, Massif Central, France
DescriptionFrom Yssingeaux (there is a free autoroute from Lyon - the N88) you climb 400 meters over 16km but there are some sections of 8%.
Real col du Verdun
A real col du Verdun this weekend with a climb on the closed section. Absolutely no-one around and few cars. Climb is just steep enough on 42x24 but not too steep.
Mont Verdun, Limonest
Pushed out to Limonest today and the closed Mont Verdun climb which I descended. A lot of cyclists on it enjoying the Sunday afternoon sun.
Usual 4x8 min intervals. Timed it better to finish the intervals on the climb and a part of the descent.
