The road up to Col du Cenise is not only quiet and beautiful – it is one of the very steepest climbs I know.
I brought along a domestique to make a little video of today’s fantastic climb.
Along with “L’Etape du Tour” – it is probably the most famous – and one of the the most challenging – Cyclosportive in France.
174 kilometres (108 miles) and 5,000 metres vertical ascent (16,400 feet)!
My fourth cyclosportive this June (versus only three the previous 42 years).
