Video: Col des Glières from the Steep East Side


A fantastic winter loop up to Col des Glières. In December we did this loop in the opposite direction – details here. But, during winter, doing the ultra steep East side makes a little more sense as it is not cleared as well as the west side – and it’s easier riding uphill on ice than descending.

Anyway, I brought along a domestique to make a little video of the ride. 😉

On the map below, ignore the little loop around Roche-sur-Foron. I forgot feet warmers and we had to search for a local bike shop to get some.

Happiest while cycling uphill.


  1. Great video of your climb, Will! Looks like it was a beautiful day for cycling.
    I’m going to have to give Eric a hard time about that fat finger. Ha! 😉
