The Cenise is a bit in the shade of Plateau de Glieres, which is close by, but I prefer this one to the Glieres. Quieter, more height meters and just as steep.

The Cenise is a bit in the shade of Plateau de Glieres, which is close by, but I prefer this one to the Glieres. Quieter, more height meters and just as steep. Disadvantage is that you can't ride your road bike all the way to the top. The beginning is fairly constant, around 10 percent, but it is easy to find a pace. But the heaviness is in the tail at the Cenise. At the junction with the road to Paradis, there is a nice stretch with lots of hairpins, which takes your mind off it for a while. But more often, it's around 13 %. At 1460-1470 meters, the first part is unpaved. Don't stop here, but ride on for a bit, because it will be asphalt again! The climax is here, there is another part asphalted until a parking place at 1560 meters, and this part goes up to 19%! I was almost at a standstill, but with the parking lot in sight, I just managed to get the right amount of energy out of it to cycle all the way up to there.

De Cenise staat wat in de schaduw van Plateau de Glieres, die er vlakbij ligt, maar ik verkoos deze toch boven de Glieres. Rustiger, meer hoogtemeters en net zo steil. Nadeel is dat je met de racefiets niet helemaal tot de top kan rijden. Het begin is redelijk constant, wel rond de 10 procent, maar een tempo is hier goed te vinden. Maar de zwaarte zit hem in de staart bij de Cenise. Bij de splitsing met de weg naar Paradis zit een aardig stuk met veel haarspeldbochten, wat je gedachten even afleid. Maar steeds vaker zit het toch rond de 13 %. Op 1460-1470 meter hoogte zit een eerste stuk onverhard. Stop hier niet, maar rijd een stuk door, want het word weer geasfalteerd! De climax zit hier namelijk, er is nog een stuk geasfalteerd tot een parkeerplaats op 1560m hoogte, en dit stuk loopt op tot 19%! Ik stond bijna stil, maar met de parkeerplaats in zicht kon ik er nog net dat beetje energie uit halen om het tot daar fietsend te volbrengen.
