Op een snikhete dag (Augustus 2016) de Franse kant van de letterlijk grensoverschrijdende Col du Portillon gefietst . Vertrek in het toeristische en de ideale fietsuitvalbasis Bagnères de Luchon via gehucht St.Marnet waar de echte klim start zoals aangegeven door een fietsinfobord met alle cijfergegevens. Het was toen vreemd dat ik op de rest van de beklimming langs deze zijde niks meer tegenkwam van fietsinformatie.
Na de openingskilometer volgt een onregelmatige bij momenten steile klim op brede weg met goed asfalt en haarspeldbochten verspreidt over de hele route. Er is amper verkeer en bewoning . In één van die bochten fiets je voorbij de imposante Cascade de Sidonie. Volledige klimroute fiets je continu door bos en woud wat bij die hoge temperaturen welgekomen was.
Op de top, eveneens verscholen in het woud, is er alleen een picknickplek met restant van de oude Frans/Spaanse grenspost. Bevoorraden doe je dus best aan de start

Niet te onderschatten grillige mooie klim.
