The longer 150km route crams a number of cols (Joux Verte, Corbier, Grabd Taillet and Jambaz to be precise) in before the final ascent up the legendary Joux Plane and the long descent back down to Morzine. As a final kick i the legs theres a 5km climb to Les Gets to finish so save something in the tank!If that's a bit much for this time of year the shorter 110km route offers the same stunning scenery but at less cost to the legs!
This is a superb introduction to Alpine road riding, two great routes on generally quiet roads and give a slightly more chilled out French sportive experience than the Marmotte in the Southern Alps, and for those of you tackling the Marmotte or the Etape (or both!) this offers some great training. However its a great ride and definitely worth doing in its own right!
