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).

Near the entrance to the “cycling-mecca” Maurienne valley is a great little road winding up through the woods to Col de Champlaurent. Ten fairly steep kilometres, lots of hairpins and virtually no traffic.
