Col de la Croix Fry features one of the most beautiful hairpins I know. A great winter Alps climb.
It’s winter in the Alps but it’s still possible to climb on a bike.
Map of over a hundred French Alps and Jura Mountains cycling climbs. Links to details for each climb (map, photo, description, elevation chart, etc)
Here are ten great routes from 2013 along with some photos that I quite liked. Happy New Year.
The other weekend Doreen and I went to Val d’Isère to cycle Col de l’Iseran the highest paved mountain pass in Europe – and definitely one of the most beautiful.
We were in Val d’Isère for Sunday’s Col de l’Iseran “bike-only” day and I decided to spend Saturday exploring up high and off-the-beaten-track.
Steep, unpaved, very fun climb up to Col du Joly – and above.
