Cycling climb of Col du Frêne


About us

In top form? So set out to conquer this pass which will take you to the heart of the Bauges in an alternation of gentle slopes and fairly steep ramps on a rather pleasant road.

It's better to go cool for this beautiful climb, and don't forget your water bottle... But this little challenge tempts you, so rev up the pedals! The turns are regular and you produce a pleasant continuous effort. The sun accompanies you in the first bends, in which you still come across a few houses. Finally, the shade of the large trees offers you a welcome coolness, because the effort begins to be sustained: the higher you go, the more the percentage of slope increases! Between the last bends, flat areas give you the opportunity to exert less force on the pedals and enjoy the landscape. After a final turn, you emerge from the cover of the forest and sunlight greets you at the pass. Take the time to breathe: you have arrived in the Bauges massif! A nice climb. And now, have you had enough in your legs or are you continuing in this magnificent regional natural park, ideal for cycling discovery?
