Cycling Col de la Croix de Fer via Col du Mollard. Map, photos, profile, etc.
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).
OK, I admit it: I am obsessed with a hairpin.

The Plateau de Chambaran is just to the south of the much higher, more savage Vercors Massif. This cycling loop managed 6 cols for the most part on super quiet roads.
