The Haute-Route sportif was crossing over the Glandon so quite a few police around. I cycled the Glandon both ascending and descending. Time for the Croix de Fer was 2h05 from Allemont but with the Glandon.

Traffic was moderate at 7h45 but heavier (motorbikes, camping cars etc.) when I descended.

Public Transport: VFD bus to Rochtaille from Grenoble


Extremely hot (+36C), Started at 7.45am to avoid the heat.
