Col du Corbier 1237 m… Col du Grand Taillet 1035 m…Pointe de Trechauffex 1290m

Great round route from Le Biot 28 miles

A fabulous ride near to Morzine, quiet roads stunning Alpine pastures of time gone by and wonderful tarmac and no nasty gradients a real ‘Pink cycling day’

Exif_JPEG_PICTUREThe wonderful windy route down into the Abondance valley

Exif_JPEG_PICTUREQuiet roads and a flat beautiful section passing through sleepy farmlands and pretty chalets.

Exif_JPEG_PICTUREThe fairly easy hairpins wind their way up to Col du Grand Taillet, this is  truly beautiful cycle route

Exif_JPEG_PICTUREA few miles of harder gradients ranging from 7 to 9 % but with tree shade and quiet roads cycling is a joy. The summit of Pointe Trechauffex is spied and a cafe at the top, of what joy on this sunny stunning ride.
