Beyond Alpe d’Huez: The Best Cycling Climbs from Bourg d’Oisans
Here is a comprehensive map of almost a 100 road bike cycling climbs all across Switzerland.
Hopefully to help me plan some trips.
The sign at the top said Combe Blanche. My book says Col de Puthod and Michelin maps says Col de la Vattay.
Regardless it’s a fantsatic, steep, deserted climb in the Jura mountains.
A beautiful but challenging mountain bike route above Gruyere.
And once finished – starving, Barry and I ordered all-you-can-eat authentic alpine soup from the local chalet restaurant. Barry even offered to cook. Delicious!
Woohooo! I cross the finish line at today’s Tour of Switzerland well before the pros – my first stage victory!
Cycling up Alpe d’Huez? There is more to do than just the usual Tour de France route.
A CHALLENGE to Martin, Barry, Eric (and anyone else):
Come join me on June 29th for La Grand Bo cyclosportif from Le Grand-Bornand.
The plan was to cycle up Col de la Joux Verte.
I knew the road was still closed, but it’s been so warm we thought with mountain bikes that we’d be OK.
