French Alps Crêt de Châtillon

Le Semnoz is the huge massif on the west side of Lake Annecy. It is the highest paved cycling climb in the region. I prefer the quieter south side. Map, photos, profile, etc.

French Alps Bauges Alps

Col de Chérel is another little known, deserted, tough, climb, from Lake Annecy. This is a relatively tough, truly quiet, loop in the Bauges Alps. Note: The top several kilometres of both cols are unpaved roads – I had my 29er mountain bike.
