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.
Tete d'Or Skating
I decided to tackle the Tete d'Or park on skate rollerskis. You feel the roughness of the surface a lot more on skate wheels. About a third of the circuit is a bit rough.
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.
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.
Very slow wheels
Rollerski with slow wheels, quite good for the arms and technique but managed to fall despite the wheels being safer, doh! Took over an hour to do the return trip - 5m/km.
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.
Head of Gold Park
Second trip to the Tete d'Or park. Not many people on a Thursday afternoon, just a few nasty dags who don't like rollerskiers but are ok with bikes and runners.
Saturday ride up to Mont Thou where the large radar ball is located. Slopes a bit more acceptable/even on this side of the hill.
Fourvière, Lyon, France
Fourvière is the hill that dominates the center of Lyon to the west on the right bank of the Saône river in the 5th arrondissement of the city.
Parc de la Tête d'Or, Lyon, France
I wanted to check out Lyon's Golden Head park to see what the surface is like for rollerskiing.
