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.
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.

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…
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…
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 study of the map. Beautiful discoveries of paths between the airport of Frontenas and Theizé, absolutely perfect! To redo as soon…
For the pleasure of seeing the forest of the Pyramid and a bit of my Beaujolais again. Sun but found frozen ground and frost-bleached vegetation north of Pyramid Crest. Left without a clear idea of a route, I innovated, and a large part of the route was unknown to me - and mainly asphalt, which was not…
Hot !! Committed gravel, very committed even, because of the Beaujolais terrain: gullies, pebbles and unstable stones, summer ice, piles of sand. And severe percentages often. Several sections to push the bike - training for the Bohemia Divide...but there the bike will be loaded. And technical descents…
