Characterized by its leafy forests, its orchards or its vineyards of the Coteaux du Lyonnais and known in particular for the passes of the Croix du Ban, the Luère and Malval, the Monts du Lyonnais massif is a territory suitable for cycling.

Sporty side
From Sain Bel, the beautiful climb to reach Saint-Romain-de-Popey sets the tone for the next kilometres: good elevations and rarely flat. The climbs and descents follow one another without leaving much respite to catch your breath.
A bumpy circuit that requires good effort management. Watch out for the very steep descent on a small road between Glay and Chessy.

Tourism side
The landscape contrasts characterise this course which flirts between Lyonnais and Beaujolais. To the west of Savigny, the Crêt d'Arjoux culminates at an altitude of 815 m. It testifies to the hilly relief of the Monts du Lyonnais. Then, after Vindry-sur-Turdine, the Pierres Dorées region reveals its art of living with its villages with ocher facades. The vines also shape the plateaus and hills of this territory where the two neighbouring vineyards of Beaujolais and Coteaux du Lyonnais rub shoulders.
