cedfromfrance said:Hi Rich, It can be very easy to get out of Lyon Airport on your bike, I am originally from Cremieu which is nearby so I know the area pretty well. Straight at the exit (Round about) after Total Petrol Station, turn right (D29) and carry on for about 2km towards Genas, then turn right (D147) . After 1km turn right again (D606) towards Pusignan. Follow that nice quiet little road, cross the main road (D302) and take the "Route de Pusignan". Cycle through Jons and along Nievroz which are nice villages, still on that quiet little road. Then take the D84c and D84 towards St Maurice de Gourdans, then Marcilleux etc... Then you are right in the countryside .... you can choose whether you want to head towards the mountains or stay around that area. If you ever come around Albertville, give me a shout, we could go for a bike ride somewhere around. Good luck Do not hesitate to look at www.viamichelin.com to print a detailled map, might be helpfull. Have a fun time in France !! Ced x
