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.
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.
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.
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.
Col de la Poya
Commute into work via the Col de la Poya. Quieter than 2 weeks ago as people are starting to go on summer holiday. Legs felt heavy on the first part of the climb but it is very steep.
col de la Poya
Ride into work via le col de la Poya. Not too bad this morning but I was rolling along. The climb is 7.5km for 550m of V+.
First Murianette of 2022
First Murianette of 2022. Since I moved offices I've gone this way less as it is a bit longer so I tend to vary the routes.
Like old times - only slower!
Felt ok climbing but 58 minutes compared to my PR of 49 ! Losing time all along the climb, a bit disappointing really but I guess I'm not prepared to bury myself as before for a PR.
I wanted to explore a couple of dead end backroads that I always ride by plus it was a way to break up the climb.
Oh! Soleil! 🌞🌞🌞
I'd not ridden this loop over the Col de la Poya since pre-lockdown.
