Col de Crozet is in the middle of a tiny ski station in the Jura mountains above Geneva.

Last year Le Cycle magazine called Mont du Chat possibly the toughest climb in France …. for me it’s far too short for that honour, but it’s hard work.

PS – cyclists should check before every ride that their tires are in good condition.

Mont Tendre is the highest point in the Swiss Jura mountains at 1,679 metres.

It’s another of those great, steep, deserted Jura roads climbing through the woods – with Alps views at the top.

At the turn, I told Eric it would be impossible to reach and totally covered in snow.

He gave me a half-smile. I knew we were going up.
