Belleville to Lyon, France

Scroll down to content

Stayed in Belleville last night, home of the french classic animated movie “Triplets of Belleville”  well sort of!  If you have not watched that movie, its on youtube, its a must for a cyclist!  I have always thought we need whistles in cycling!  This first image is of a french chicken.  You are asking yourself, Dave, how do you know its french and whats the difference from normal chickens?  Well, I am in France and it is quite fashionable but mostly because it is eating a baguette!  It was a pet for the owners of the B&B I stayed at last night.  It was quite friendly.


Here are a couple of images of the run in to Lyon.


Ars-sur-Formans, France

As I got closer to Lyon, about 15 kilometers out, I rode along the banks of the Saone River, it was not the run in I expected as I got close to Lyon…..


It got less primitive closer to Lyon.

Great bike route, right into the City along the Saone River

Now, images from around the city.  Lyon is so beautiful, I love this city, so clean and has a great vibe.

The Notre Dame of Lyon, I think this is the most beautiful church I have ever seen and I have seen a few.   Click the link here to see my blog from last years visit up there.

Classic Lyon resturant street.  Lyon is know for producing the world’s top chefs.  If you ever get a chance to watch Anthony Bordain’s Parts Unknown for Lyon, it gives you a great history of the world cuisine influence from this city.  Its really the center of the universe from a cuisine standpoint!
