Bien connue des cyclistes du coin et final de la dernière étape du Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré 2017, la montée au plateau de Solaison par Thuet est une ascension très raide puisque la pente sur plus de 11kms est supérieure à 9 %
Il vaut donc mieux arriver au pied après un bon échauffement.
Dès le départ la route s’élève brusquement et les moments de répits seront rares, un passage avant le village de Brizon permet de reprendre un peu de souffle avant la 2ème partie plus irrégulière avec des passages à plus de 10 % dont l’un à 15 %
Beaucoup de zones à l’ombre ( le matin ) , je n’ai pas aperçu de point d’eau potable.
Le final se situe sur l’immense plateau de Solaison, départ de nombreux sentiers de randonnées pédestres et ou vous pourrez déguster la spécialité du coin  au restaurant La Bruyère : les fameux beignets de pommes de terres.
Pour info : Les panneaux cyclistes sont présents à chaque kilomètres
