While Les Gets is a well-known destination for world class mountain biking, it is also perfectly placed for road cyclists to explore some truly challenging climbs against the stunning backdrop of the Mt Blanc Massif.
The Tour de France regularly comes through Les Gets, with the Col de Joux Plane and Col de Ramaz just on our doorstep. The 14km time trial route from Morzine to Avoriaz is a great challenge, with 19 hair pin bends to test your strength.
There are plenty of other local climbs to choose from too, and the the inter-linking network of mountain passes that are open in the summer months gives endless possibilities when planning your routes, and provides an incredible back-drop to every climb.
The Cycling Challenge website has lots of information on the climbs listed here, and others in the area: www.cycling-challenge.com/map-of-french-and-swiss-alps-cycling-climbs/
