San Salvatore, Lake Maggiore, Italy
I took this climb by error. From Lesa it is a hard 5.75km at 9% covering around 550 vertical meters. The road ends at a monastery and there is a very good trattoria with lake views.
Ride with Mike (& Colin)
We spent the first half of the ride dodging showers then decided to turn around where we met Colin, a Scots guy who'd punctured and had some issues with his tires.
St Jean le Vieux, Belledonne, Alps, France
The climb to St Jean le Vieux starts in Domene. It is a 500 meter climb at and average 9% over 5.8km with a few ramps and flats en-route. At about 3.
Tour of the Gorge de Manival
Climb the left bank of the Manival stream following a good jeep track to the to the Manival Forest Cabin (open, unguarded) at 870m. The track is very steep for 50 meters.
Tour du Pin, Coche to Aigleton
From the parking at Prabert (pont de la Betta 1336m after March) follow the GR549 trail to the Habert d'Aiguebelle at 1800m. Continue east to the Pas de la Coche (2030 m).
Murianette Loop, Rhone-Alpes, France
Classic lunch loop for local riders and used in an autumn hill climb. The road is largely in the shade, great in high summer, very cold in the late autumn and even icy in the winter.
Monte Rosso, Lake Maggiore, Italy
There are over 40 hairpins on the 450 meter/8% climb to Monte Rosso. This has the advantage that the climb is never too steep. The road on the last km to the restaurant is not in great condition.
Col du Lauteret via le Rouare, Gresivaudan, Alps, France
This is a nice quiet little climb to the Col du Lauteret (not THE col du Lauteret) by Prabert in the French Belledonne mountains near to Grenoble.
DescriptionThe Col d'Hurtières is a nice little climb out of the Gresivaudan valley near Tencin.
Via dei Colli Morning Ride
Still suffering from a broken rib due to bike crash so couldn't push it on the flat although largely ok on the hills (different position).
