This climb starts as soon as you leave Lansebourg. The climb is pretty constant with percentages between 7% and 9%. The road is wide and the tarmac is good. Along the trees you have nice views of the snowy peaks along the way. The last 2 km you come out of the forest and have clear views. A nice... read more

A great climb from Lanslebourg up along Napoleon’s road to the Col. Then you can turn around, or continue round the Lake and find a restaurant for a long lunch or ride out to Petit Mont Cenis.

magnificent climb in June with fields bursting with flowers and snow on mountain tops. wonderful wide road with open views along the way, leads to a beautiful lake. fabulous road right next to and just above the picturesque lake. fantastic descent back to Lanslebourg. too many motorbikes but not as bad as Izoard out of briancon. perhaps go on a weekday.

The ascent from Val Cenis is exactly 10 km long and has a leisurely, almost steady gradient of 6 to 9%. If you set off early in the day, you can cover much of the distance in the shade of the mountains or trees. What I have never seen on an alpine pass before: from the first hairpin bend there is a marked bicycle lane!

Die Auffahrt von Val Cenis ist genau 10 km lang und hat mit 6 bis 9% gemächliche, fast gleichmäßige Steigung. Wenn man früh am Tag aufbricht, kann man einen großen Teil der Strecke im Schatten der Berge oder Bäume bewältigen. Was ich noch nie bei einem Alpenpass gesehen habe: ab der ersten Kehre gibt es einen abmarkierten Fahrradstreifen!

Surely the average gradient of this climb will soon be around 7.5% and not 6.9 because it is constantly 8 or 9 % apart from 2 km, not a very special climb but the summit is beautiful because of the fantastic lake that can be seen there

Het gemiddelde stijgingspercentage van deze klim zal toch rap rond de 7,5% liggen en niet 6,9 want het is constant 8 of 9 % op 2 km na voor de rest geen geweldig speciale klim maar de top is wel mooi door het fantastische meer dat daar te zien is

This climb starts as soon as you leave Lansebourg. The climb is pretty constant with percentages between 7% and 9%. The road is wide and the tarmac is good. Along the trees you have nice views of the snowy peaks along the way. The last 2 km you come out of the forest and have clear views. A nice little tent with good food and an elderly hostess who will tell you all about the area and history of Mont Cenis awaits you at the top.
Tip: don't stop at the top but still cycle along the lake (4/5 km long) 😀.

Deze klim begint direct zodra je Lansebourg verlaat. De klim is behoorlijk constant met percentages tussen de 7% en 9%. De weg is breed en het asfalt is goed. Langs de bomen heb je onderweg mooie uitzichten op de besneeuwde toppen. De laatste 2 km kom je uit het bos en heb je vrij uitzicht. Boven wacht een leuk tentje met goed eten en een oudere gastvrouw die je alles over de omgeving en geschiedenis van Mont Cenis zal vertellen.
Tip: stop niet op de top maar fiets nog langs het meer (4/5 km lang). 😀

Nice climb, with a very wide and rolling road, the asphalt responds very well.
I did it one afternoon, there was no one there, I had good legs, I did it in dry climb, be good for the 2 or 3 km that separates us from the top because it takes a little jump, the arrival is magnificent with a view on the lake, I also advise to drive a little around the lake but do not embark towards suza because there, the climb is another story

Belle montée ,avec une route très large et très roulante , l'enrobé répond très bien .
Je l'ai fait un après midi ,il n'y avait personne ,j'avais de bonnes jambes ,je l'ai effectué en montée sèche , être bien pour les 2 ou 3 km qui nous sépare du sommet car il faut un peu de jump , l'arrivée est magnifique avec une vue sur le lac ,je conseille également de rouler un peu au tour du lac mais ne vous embarquez pas vers suza car là ,la montée c'est une autre histoire

On both sides, the ascent to the Mont-Cenis is done on a wide road with a lot of traffic, especially on the Italian side because of the many picnic spots just before the dam.
The climb starts immediately with 1 km which can be used as a warm up and then steady and quite steep to the top.
View on the lake and the surrounding mountains, but frankly I found this summit a bit monotonous compared to some other passes. Then 4kms on a plateau before switching to Susa.

Sur un versant comme sur l’autre, la montée au Mont-Cenis s’effectue par une route large est à grande voir très grande circulation, surtout du coté italien du fait des nombreux coins pique-niques juste avant le barrage.
La montée commence aussitôt par 1 km qui peut servir d'échauffement puis régulière ensuite et assez pentue jusqu’au sommet.
Vue sur le lac et les montagnes environnantes, mais franchement j’ai trouvé ce sommet un peu monotone au rapport de certains autres cols. Reste ensuite 4kms sur un plateau avant de basculer vers Susa.

Nice climb, but the 3 kms at 9 percent ..... It was hard, but it's worth it, the lake is beautiful, but be careful on the way down, the surface is not great

Belle montée,mais les 3 kms a 9 pourcent ..... C était dur ,mais ça vaut le coup,le lac est magnifique,par contre faire attention a la descente ,le revêtement n est pas top

Nice climb on wide road between the trees without extreme percentages.
Beautiful panoramic views on the snowy peaks of the National Park La Vanoise on the other side of the valley.
Typical cycling signs every kilometer (altitude/% next km/distance to summit).
After the summit, be sure to continue cycling along the slightly uphill road next to the reservoir in 360° of pure mountain scenery!

Mooie klim op brede weg tussen de bomen zonder extreme percentages.
Prachtige panoramische vergezichten op de besneeuwde toppen van het Nationaal Park La Vanoise aan de overzijde van het dal.
Typische fietsbordjes elke kilometer (hoogte/% volgende km./afstand tot top).
Na de top zeker nog even verder fietsen langs de licht op en neergaande weg naast het stuwmeer in 360° puur berglandschap !
