Around and Over Le Salève

This is just a wonderful route. All the roads are well surfaced, deserted, scenic, and often uphill. Although, I need to write to the local mayors to install some missing Col signs.

The 2008 Dauphiné Libéré Gets Steep!

Yes, the Dauphinée will climb Le Salève up the super steep route from Collonge-Sous-Salève just behind my house.

It is rated category one but features 4 kilometres averaging 12% – with a full kilometre averaging 13%. This is steep!
