Mont Cindre, Lyon, France
A trip into the Monts d'Or which I know quite well now up as far as Mont Cindre. Not easy on my 42x24 gear as some of the ramps are pretty steep. The countryside at the gates of the city.
Usual 4x8 min intervals. Timed it better to finish the intervals on the climb and a part of the descent.
Preprandial Isere loop
Preprandial loop to get a bit of air on what should be (and were) some dry trails. Quite a few people around. A bit muggy, better close to the river.
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.
St Jean and Belledonne Intervals
First intervals for a long time. I decided to try 4x8. First set was hard but after ok but need a bit of a slope to get the HR up.
Loop via the dykes
Took it relatively easy. HRM was reading below 140 for most of the way but it was my optical monitor so not sure about the accuracy. A bit hard after the hours. 4m17 per km.
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.
Isere towpath south
A little aperitif ride on the flat along the tow paths of the river. We explored some strange track shown on google earth, a kind of loop.
Another bite of the Madeleine
I parked up at la Grande Croix d'Aiguebelle. A hamlet at the entrance to the Maurienne valley. In the drought the river was dry but the fountain still worked.
Ride to work but staying on the Chartreuse side of the valley to allow a bail out if time was a problem 1h11 for the ride so leaving at 7.30 was in work for 8.40.
