A very beautiful, demanding climb with no traffic. The quality of the road is good from May to November. Stop off at the "Ptit Bar" (halfway up the route) for refreshments or just to admire the view of Mont Blanc. In any case, do it once (at least ;-) ).... read more

Une très belle montée exigeante et sans circulation. La qualité de la route est bonne de mai à novembre.
Une halte au "Ptit Bar" (mi-parcours) pour un ravitaillement ou juste pour admirer la vue sur le Mont-Blanc.
En tous les cas à faire une fois (au moins ;-) )

Very little traffic, road under the fir trees. At the start of the season, there were a lot of stones and debris on the road, but it was no problem for a road bike.

Très peu de circulation, route sous les sapins. En début de saison, beaucoup de cailloux et de débris sur la route, mais ça passe sans problème en vélo de route.

The ascent of the Baudichonne is very difficult, for a first I would remember.
It prepares well for the Grand Colombier.

Montée de la Baudichonne est très difficile, pour une première je me souviendrais.
Elle prépare bien pour le grand Colombier.

Difficult climb which leaves no time for recuperation. No traffic at all. Beware : the most difficult part of the climb (2 last km) comes after the farm, so keep some strength for the end. At the top of the climb, there is a small gravel path which is doable with a normal racing bike an which leads to the mai road to Les Rousses or Mijoux.
Climb done on August 31th

Short but steep, pieces up to 13%.
When you reach the farm, you are not at the top, so keep going. Do the short decent and a final short 13% climb to reach the real summit of the col.
No cars and hardly any cyclists there. Be careful on the decent, there is some gravel and occasional rocks on the road.
Enjoy!

A formidable climb with its last kilometre to cut your legs off... without any car, impeccable surface, in the forest and much more demanding than the Sickle (and without the traffic...). Indeed the Gravel allows the loop not the combe blanche which also deserves the diversions with the cherry by Vesancy.

Redoutable montée avec son dernier kilomètre a couper les pattes.. sans aucune voiture, revêtement impeccable, dans la forêt et nettement plus exigeante que la faucille (et sans la circulation…). Effectivement le Gravel permet la boucle pas la combe blanche qui elle aussi mérite le détour avec la cerise par Vesancy..

Short but efficient climb! No car !
The only drawback is that if you have a road bike, you'll have to turn back once you've reached the top, but if you have a gravel bike, there are plenty of possibilities... In particular, you can go back down by the Combe Blanche towards Divonne-les-Bains

Montée courte mais efficace ! Pas de voiture !
Seul bémol, si vous avez un vélo de route il faudra surement faire demi-tour une fois arrivée en haut par contre avec un gravel il y a plein de possibilités... Notamment redescendre par la Combe Blanche vers Divonne-les-Bains
