Col de Crozet, in the French Jura mountains, is an excellent, very quiet, unpaved road up through a small ski station. This is a perfect mountain bike climb to get “above the clouds”
A truly beautiful mountain bike cycling climb to Col de Balme, surrounded by views of snowy peaks and a glacier or two. Map, photos, etc.
Enjoying Paris by bike, visiting all the typical tourist sites. Map and photos.
Very challenging, super scenic, five col mountain bike loop up to Les Grandes Platières (2480m). With amazing views of Mont Blanc at the summit.
Two beautiful, quiet cycling climbs in the Hautes Alpes. I’ll need to return when there is less fog so I can enjoy the famous views from Notre Dame de la Salette. Map, photos, etc.
Cycling to the Glacier de Mont-de-Lans and Col du Jandri. The second highest road – paved or unpaved – in Europe. Map, photos, etc.
Cycling to 3131 metres and the summit of Mont Chaberton and its 19th century Fort. The highest I have ever been on a bike. Map, photos, etc.
Beautiful cycling climb via the lesser known 3rd, tougher route, to Cormet de Roselend: via the beautiful Col du Pré.
A fun hike & bike route. Cycling to Col de la Colombière and then hiking much higher to Lac de Peyre. Map, photos, etc.
