Fairly well known among Geneva cyclists is some version of the 10 Col Vallée Verte loop.

Col de Joux Plane’s Tougher Neighbour: Plateau des Saix
Col du Noyer is a beautiful, medium difficulty, climb in the Hautes Alpes starting off the Route du Napoleon.
Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe. A massive 38 kilometre climb with 2000 metres of ascent. Wow!
The best part of Plaine Joux is without a doubt the views of Mont Blanc and surrounding mountains.
It is still too early for the high Alps roads to be open. But I thought I’d climb some beautiful roads and see how high I could get.
Col de Tamié would be a good location to watch stage 19 of the 2013 Tour de France.
