Col du Grand Colombier, Culoz story submitted on 10/20/2016
Seen this feature a couple of times in the Tour. The views from the Lacets above Culoz inspired me to ride up on a beautiful September afternoon. Only one car came past in 90 minutes of climbing.

As has been stated up thread, the climb hits you almost immediately on leaving Culoz. My Garmin showed plenty of 14% ramps up to the Lacets at about 7 kms in, which afford spectacular views down the Rhone valley towards Aix les Bains.

After the hairpins, the road cuts through the forest with extended straight sections of up to 17%. The only reason this climb averages about 7% is that there are a couple of kms which afford some recovery.

The last 3 kms take you above the tree line, and if the cloud cover is absent, there are wonderful views towards Mont Blanc.

This is a superb climb. The shade afforded by the forest would be precious protection in hot weather.

Chemin de Sepaz, Morgins story submitted on 10/21/2016
Starting on a quiet road behind the patisserie, this is a brutally steep climb. The average gradient for the first 2.5 kms is at least 16%. There is some respite about 1.5 kms from the pass, but be prepared to use your lowest gear for this one

Mont le Soi, Grand Halleux story submitted on 10/4/2012
Steep intro from Grand Halleux for 1800 metres, then a long drag through the trees to the horse riding centre with a last short kick to the summit. Pretty climb and quiet road with great early views back to the Wanne. Definitely worth including in your rides.

Mortirolo, Mazzo story submitted on 6/10/2013
OK this is a story about the Mortirolo road (not on Google maps) from Tovo di Sant''Agata, a village just south of Mazzo. I am 54 years old, endurance guy rather than climber.I rode this as part of the Gran Fondo Stelvio. It is just as steep as the Mazzo climb, but the last two kms are brutally steep, 23%, on a concrete track sometimes unsurfaced. I was riding 34/30 lowest gear. It was a tough grind for 8 kms before the hellish track. I cannot believe that the Zoncolan is tougher than this final stretch.



Still, I would do it again. The Fondo was tough but well organised

Superbagnères, Bagnères de Luchon story submitted on 9/29/2015
I rode SuperB on a glorious Sepetember afternoon. Felt good after climbing the Peyresourde in the morning. The back valley gives superb views of the Madaleta and Aneto glaciers in Spain. I found it a tough climb due to the inconsistent gradient. Very hard to find a rhythm. At least the equal of Ventoux (pick your side). Having made it to the top, the views are utterly stupendous. The last 1500m are unforgiving....or maybe it was just a bad gig for me. Definitely one to put on your list.

Mortirolo (Tovo), Tovo story submitted on 1/3/2016
So I rode the Mortirolo from Tova di Sant'' Agata in June 2013. My Garmin says it is 11 kms at 11% average. I was 55 years old and rode 50/34 12/30 gearing. It was not really low enough! The last 1900 m near the top on a very rough surface hits gradients of 26%. Probably the toughest single climb I have ever done. At one point I fell off sideways. Still managed to get back on and ride to the top. Don''t underestimate this climb....it is a brute
