Most rides from home are smile shaped altitude wise.
Below is an altitude chart of todays’s ride. Pretty much every ride from our new home involves descending for the first several kms, leveling out with lots of small ups and down, and then a long slog uphill home.
It is possible in the summer to invert this by climbing the salève (the mountain behind us that we’re part way up). But currently its closed due to snow.
Total Distance 9,678 kms
