A few weeks ago while cycling Col de la Madeleine and Lachat I could see into the next valley and noticed some amazing hairpins up high. I vowed to take a closer look.
Here is a comprehensive map of almost a 100 road bike cycling climbs all across Switzerland.
Hopefully to help me plan some trips.
We were in Val d’Isère for Sunday’s Col de l’Iseran “bike-only” day and I decided to spend Saturday exploring up high and off-the-beaten-track.
If you do one climb in the French Pyrenées, make it Lac de Cap de Long.
Near Geneva many of the best Nordic Ski locations are at the top of interesting cycling climbs.
