A legendary gran fondo, but in my opinion not the most beautiful. The Glandon is not too bad. Especially the Télégraphe I hated: no view at all and lots of traffic. The Galibier is beautiful.
I prefer the alpenbrevet: much more beautiful and (almost) as difficult.

Een legendarische gran fondo, maar naar mening niet de mooiste. De Glandon kan er nog mee door. Vooral de Télégraphe vond ik vreselijk: niets van uitzicht en heel veel verkeer. De Galibier is wel prachtig.
Doe mij maar het alpenbrevet: Veel mooier en (bijna) even lastig.

Aanrader !! Zwaar heftig mooi en helemaal geweldig.
Bereid je heel goed voor dat is een heel lang verhaal in een notendop samengevat.
