"One of my favorite training rides starts with some flat road around the lake and then on this ride, I do three 15-20-minute climbs but there are many other options to do longer or different climbs.
I do most of my climbing training in this area because the roads are really quiet and a it’s a beautiful area. You always have a great view of the lake and the Alps.
The top of the third climb in Provence is a stunning place to stop and take a picture of the view.
Then, on the way back, I stop at the Boulangerie Gerber-Wyss in Yverdon. It’s a great place for a good coffee and a cookie at the end of a good training ride.
Séverin Gerber and Grégory Wyss (not related to me) are good friends of mine. They are doing really good things and it's definitely the place to stop for a coffee. They are also cycling fans and made some special bread for the Tour de Romandie.
From there I have around one hour to go to get home and I can always add a few more 10-minute climbs if I want to make the training harder. For me, this ride is rated as a six or seven (out of ten) depending on the workouts I do on the climbs."
