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

I like to consider myself a fairly good “Col Hunter.” But my friend Bastien is a true expert.
A scenic, very quiet route – including a long stretch of trails – in the Bauges Alps. Five Cols (although, admittedly I descended to two of them).
A fantastic four col loop through the Chartreuse alps above Chambéry.
The goal was to find some new Cols and quiet, scenic roads. Mission accomplished.
A great loop in the beautiful Vercors Massif. Four Cols, two typically stunning Vercors gorges, and a terrifying tunnel.
A near perfect day (apart from bonking) Col hunting around the Mountain des Vorès above Col des Saisies.
I was like a kid in a candy store.
Today’s ride passed at least 10 Cols (mountain passes) – I have photos of 9, missed one sign and got lost off road at a likely 11th. Fun!
