15,11 km cycling route from Yzeron to St-André-la-Côte

Under the Bois de Lienne, a former hideout of maquisards during the last world war, pedal up to the medieval village of Rochefort, amidst the orchards, crops and livestock of the Monts du Lyonnais. The climbs can be tough, but there's no shortage of views over the Lyonnais basin. If you're brave enough, climb up to the Signal antenna. Your effort will be rewarded by the panoramic view.
