Le Beaujolais offre une grande diversité aux amoureux de vélo tous chemins. Entre le bas Beaujolais et ses vignes, le haut Beaujolais et ses forêts, les Pierres dorées et leurs villages si pittoresques, il y a de quoi faire. Du plat, du vallonné, et du pentu. Et surtout une multitude de toutes petites routes sans aucune voiture, des chemins de vigne, forestiers ou agricoles, des passages à gué, des sentiers pierreux ou herbeux, au milieu des buis ou des sapins, tout est possible, jusqu'aux bords de Saône. Et bien sûr, partout des vins, de la charcuterie, du fromage à déguster. Et de superbes restaurants.

    A very nice, easy and very quiet, rural loop. No cars, very small roads and lots of dirt roads. Very beautiful views of the Beaujolais mountains. And a very pleasant return to the banks of the Saône.

    Small roads without traffic from Lacenas. A little way, especially on the return. From village to village, all so beautiful. Two important stops, at the Bois d'Oingt on the café terrace, reunion with friends, what a pleasure. And then a meal with these same friends.

    The tour is perfect for a less-than- 2 hour gravel ride. Mixes both asphalt and dirt, hardly any mud really.

    Finally a 100 km in gravel, the weather lasted me! and what weather, wow !! Route planned in its outline, many impros, all happy. Yeah !! A bit of everything, and a nice trick. Very happy with the loop Civrieux-Mont d'Or (the Nant, I think) with superb and technical paths because of the mud in Dommartin. At Nant, stop talking with the horses. 1000 m deniv + over the first 50 kilometers. The descent on Chasselay was fun, shake me shake me, crossed mountain bikers in large numbers, nice. Found a quick link between Chasselay and Trévoux. Restoration stop at Trévoux. The end rather oily sometimes, fun again, and beautiful landscapes of the plateau of Ain, totally cleared, and the mountains of Beaujolais in the background. Totally bogged down between Fareins and Beauregard ... not to do again.

    Very nice tour in Beaujolais. Cols of Pierre Plate then Cross Montmain by the Creuse: the most beautiful climbs on Montmain Cross, on small secondary road with some laces. The forest tracks of the Pyramid (still a few patches of snow and ice) and Cantinière, and the superb views over the Azergues Valley. The Joncin pass, a charming little road to reach Ste Paule, Oingt's Willow, Oingt, Theizé's path to the Ville de Jarnioux and the Four Winds .... what's best in itinerary and landscapes. What Beaujolais is beautiful!

    Some trimming is required owing to some route adjustments that had to be made when out there.
    Definitely the most varied and interesting route ever ridden to Côte d'Or. Can still be improved though, via Citeaux Forests and Côtes de Nuits vineyards- that will be for my next day trip to Chenôve.

    Performed solo on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, on HT Stump. Super weather. Between known and unknown through the woods of Alix and the golden stones, without route GPS but after …
