Cycling above 3000 metres. Super fun mountain bike ride to the top of an Alp above Val Thorens ski station.
Browsing: “Val Thorens”
The Twenty Highest Paved Cycling Climbs in France. Maps, photos, route descriptions, etc.
Meribél Mottaret is the high point in the middle valley of Les Trois Vallées
Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe. A massive 38 kilometre climb with 2000 metres of ascent. Wow!
Part of my 2011 Challenge was to ride above 3000 metres by bike for the first time. Injury delayed this goal, but I hadn’t forgotten. 🙂
I prefer skiing to riding an indoor trainer …..
One of the longest and biggest climbs in France. Val Thorens is the highest resort in the world famous Trois Vallées ski area (Courchevel, Méribel, etc).
Winter is for dreaming. Here are five great French Alps climbs all over 2,000 metres that to-date I have not yet cycled.
