Mont Revard is the big Massif just north-east of Chambéry, overlooking the south-east side of Lac du Bourget. Its imposing cliff face dominates the views east and the roads up need to cycle around behind these cliffs from either the north (Aix-les-Bains) or the south (Chambéry).
Lac du Bourget and Surrounding Cycling Climbs
The Twenty Highest Paved Cycling Climbs in France. Maps, photos, route descriptions, etc.
Cycling up to Pila: the ski station high above the city of Aosta. Map, photos, profile.
These are the last two climbs in the mountainous Stage 19 of the 2015 Giro d’Italia. Map, photos, climb profiles, trip report.
I believe many cyclo-tourists do themselves a huge disservice by prioritising Alpe d’Huez above many far, far more interesting roads.
Cycling up to Col de Joux Plane and renting Cross Country Skis at the Summit. Map, photos, etc.
One of my regular and favourite winter climbs. Col de Pierre Carrée (1844 metres) is the highest paved road open 12 months a year in Haute Savoie
