A very quiet, challenging, unpaved cycling route to Col des Glières that includes 6 cols, and passes very close to three more. Map and photos.

This is one of my favourite winter Alpine loops. In the opposite direction than usual.

Back in May, we hiked up to Chalet des Auges above Col des Glières. We were astonished to see a mountain biker there. Upon interrogation we discovered that there is a terrible quality, old road up the back way, starting in Entremont.
