Stories, information and comments from Col de la Biche climbers
Story by M. Mulder from , The Netherlands, submitted on 29/07/2012
We did a tour. From Culoz we climbed the Grand Colombier. After the descent we went north to Brenaz and started climbed the smaller Col de la Biche.

There is no easy part in this climb until the top. There is a sign your on the col. Then follows a short descent and a finnishing climb to the top.

A tough cookie this one.

the way down to Seyssel was nice. From Seyssel to Coluz is among a larger road, but al a little downwarts, so a very nice ending of our 67 km tour.
