I know what you’ll all say but it’s a mission to get to from here (3+ hr drive) so i probs won’t do it and this referendum is not legally binding. i do wanna do it though[poll type=regular public=true]

  • Alpe d’Huez
  • Col d’Iseran
  • Mont Ventoux
  • Lac Leman (lake geneva circuit)
  • Col de Joux Plane & tdf '16 mountain tt route
  • something fucking flat
    [/poll]

Col d’Iseran is meant to be mental. Obvs Ventoux and Huez are great, but I’ve always wanted to give the Iseran a go over the others


#3550

don’t want to influence the voting but iseran is a good shout because it involves no driving and there are loads of pubs on the way back down
:relieved:


#3551

it’s a pretty much solid 40km climb from here :confused:


#3552

Haven’t got a link for the also ran of the options


#3553

#3554

Could try this


#3555

:slight_smile: from the looks of the map I’m doing most of that in the etape next month :sob:

hold on…32000 ft wtaf is he an astronaut ?


#3556

6 or 7 major mountain passes


#3557

don’t think i’ve even seen anything more than about 4500m in one ride (so 15000ft ish)

think my biggest day this year was 2000m (plus a bit) and i was flat on my back after that


#3558

Don’t talk to me about climbing, used to love it. Now not so much


#3559

so very looking forward to next weekend


#3560

Drove up there a couple of weeks ago. The road is barely wide enough for 2 cars, so a plodding cyclist will be holding up traffic to a fair extent. It is brutal by the looks of it. There’s a right hand turn about half way up and then it really kicks up.

We can try it, hit I might hate you forever


#3562

is it quite a busy road? most of the hard climbs are really quiet so there’s plenty of zig-zagging room, not up for 25% in traffic


#3563

Yeah properly busy both ways. It’s literally a stone’s throw from Castleton and that’s a really busy place too. There’s a large car park at the bottom and the traffic coming from the top down seems very consistent. I was very surprised about the traffic tbh
