Fourvière dog attack
A lunch run to the hill of Fourvière between the rain storms, which are incessant this year. Run up ok apart from the end of the steep staircase and took a slightly longer route for the descent.
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.
Fourvière descent by the 800 steps
Run up through the gardens to Fourviere, descent via the staircase to St Paul which apparently has 796 steps. Weather kept the tourists at bay.
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%.
Col de Pré Long, Belledonne, France
I'd cycled down from the col de Pré Long last weekend and the road surface looked ok so I decided to ski if it could be rollerskied. I parked at St Mury.
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.
Col de Porte Lunch Ski
A very pleasant little lunch ski. I had my old poles which are not very good as they are a bit knackered. Not ideal on the climbs but that mean using my legs a bit more, not bad for technique.
