Road Cycling (66)
Le Paradis Loop
A small loop starting at Gieres, climbing to Uriage then taking a small but steep climb of some 350 meters at 10% after dog and cat home (SPA) with some steeper ramps in places.
St Eynard to the snow
Freezing today I rode as far as the snow although the road was clear to the fort. Cold hands and feet on the climb but warmed up a bit on the descent. St Eynard is certainly steep at the end.
4 Seigneurs Loop via Uriage
The 4S (seigneurs) summit is a classic for road cyclists and MTBers in the area, short, sharp but quiet roads with a great view.
Alpe Quaggione from Montebuglio, Lake Maggiore, Italy
General DescriptionThe climb is 14% over 5km for 700 meters of climbing. The climb through the village of Montebuglio is very steep but afterwards settles down to 12-13% with a series of steep ramps.
La Combe de Lancey, Gresivaudan, Alps France
The climb of the Combe de Lancey begins at Lancey via a long drag past the old paper mills.
Levo - Stresa - Someraro loop
Rode up to Levo. Down to Stresa then returned via the climb to Someraro for a fairly quick and efficient 850 meters of climbing. You can find water at Levo on the main road.
Alpe Rossombolmo, lago di Maggiore, Italy
This fearsome climb starts from the village of Ornavasso just north of Gravellone-Toce.
Col de Chamrousse via the Col du Luitel
The col de Chamrousse (1795 m.) can be climbed by road bike from 3 sides. By far the hardest is the tiny but ueber steep route from Sechilienne.
Superga, Torino, Italy
Direct climb to the Superga from Turin in 25m53, a long way from Thibot Pinot's race winning time of 13m38 and he'd ridden from Milan! The climb is 450 meters at 9% with a couple of ramps en-route.
Alpi Ompio, Verbania, Italy
DescriptionSouth east facing but quite a bit of shade as you climb through the woods. The climb to Alpe Ompio is 7km at 8% giving 550meters total from the village of Bieno.
