Hi all,

Sunday was pretty sunny even if the themperature was a bit cold (less than 10°C).

I decided to test an little software on my cellular phone called GPS Essentials (for Android Phones). It allows you to make paths and you can see these paths on Google Maps/Earth after by exporting the path on a *.kml file.

Here is the RB made ---> http://g.co/maps/mpxxh

To sum up:
Total trip : 167km
Vmax : 161km/h
Lowest Altitude : 294m
Highest Altitude : 1199m
Average spped : 44.5km/h


Here are the pics:


Here is the new dashboard of my V. New additional trips :yeahsmile: (because the buttons on the dashboard are out of service for more than one year...)


Near Serrières-sur-Ain, in Ain Valley.


Cize-Bolozon Viaduct with a TGV up above.


A waterfall near Matafelon-Granges (10km far from Oyonnax)


Pause at Nantua Lake.


For about 200m, I had to ride on snowy roads. A bit fun :D




Here is a big test for the altitude. The road sign mentionned that the pass is 1144m above sea level, and the software said 1173m. Not so bad indeed but I wonder which one is true. Anyway, it works and that's enough.

Spectacular scenery and great photographs!! The viaduct with the TGV is a wonderful juxtaposition. :thumb:

Oh, to be back in Europe again. Lived in France in the 60s, England in the 70s, and Germany in the 80s. Perhaps again one day soon, if I'm fortunate. :)

I've been looking at maps and you have so many roads and such different terrain to choose from.

Cheers.

Thanks for your greetings! I was a bit lucky when the TGV was on the viaduct. Even if I'm a bit deaf, when I heard it... no choice :D

@Ivan V : it's true that I'm a bit lucky for the roads. Even if my family and friends live a bit away (but less than before), you can't imagine how I feel in the morning when I wake up and see those mountains. I would truly feel depressed if I have to live in another place right now (excepted Savoy or Massif Central :D )

Alps, Jura and Massif Central are not so far away, and can be reached within two hours max. Also for French Riviera, it can be reached within four hours by motorway.

It's been for one year that I've moved back from Paris to Ambérieu, and there's soooooo many places and landscapes to be seen. It will be dealt with in 2012 and after :teetertooter: Stay tuned!

@Arion : where did you live in France during the 60s? What about England and Germany? I hope that you'll have the opportunity to go back to Europe soon ;-)
